ATB Cares is an easy-to-use cause-of-choice website that enables Albertans to donate to the charities that are important to them. Once registered with the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), charities are automatically included on atbcares.com.
Check out our Fact Sheet for additional program details.
ATB matches 20% of all donations made to Alberta-based, non-religious charities through ATB Cares, up to a maximum of $30,000 per month. Eligible causes may receive up to $5,000 of matching per year (April 1-March 31) and individual donations qualify for a maximum donation match of $500.
Tax receipts are issued automatically to donors through the Canadian Online Giving Foundation (COGF). An administrative fee of 2.9% (up to a maximum of $250 per donation), plus applicable merchant fees, will apply and be netted from all donations prior to their disbursement to charities. Please note matching does not currently apply to gift cards.
Charity partners are encouraged to set up an online profile with Benevity and sign up for electronic funds transfer (EFT) to avoid incurring additional fees.
ATB Cares operates within the UTC time zone (Coordinated Universal Time). MST (Alberta) is UTC - 7:00, meaning donations made after 4:59:59 pm MST (6:59:59 EST) will be timestamped for the following day. Please keep this in mind if the specific date is relevant to your charitable tax receipt.
Use the ATB Cares search engine to find the cause that means the most to you. Our search engine contains all Canadian registered charities, including over 9,000 in Alberta. Once you’ve made your donation, you'll be emailed a tax receipt.
