Community is the cornerstone of the BOMA Calgary Foundation. We exist in order to make a positive change in the lives of those in need, and help create a better, more caring city. One way in which we support our community is by donating financially to not-for-profit charities.
As well as monetary support, our board members love taking a more “hands on” approach. We regularly participate in fundraising events, and volunteer our time and skills for charitable activities within the Calgary area.
