Help us meet our $3.8 million dollar goal for our new building in Mayland Heights.

The Capital Campaign

The EvenStart Early Childhood Development Centre will be home to Calgary’s children who are challenged by trauma, violence, abuse, and poverty. The creation of the Centre’s new building will be backed by the wisdom of our 20 years of experience in providing service to at-risk children. It will be an environment structured, built, and designed for young children.

The Design

The new Centre will allow us to expand, providing service to 60 additional EvenStart children living in Calgary. The Centre will celebrate childhood with materials and structure focused on children’s learning, play, and recovery. It will be based on the Reggio approach to early childhood education. In its design, construction, and maintenance the Centre will comprise ergonomic, green, and sustainable products that align with the Reggio philosophy. It will not be an old facility retro-fitted for our needs. Instead it will rise from the ground up, envisioned through the eyes of a child.

The Window of Opportunity

Donor Acknowledgment

Donor gifts will be acknowledged in many forms, including inscribed memorials on a Wall of Recognition.

Building Elements — named specifically after major donors — will help children each day to acknowledge the patrons of their future success. Donor Name Recognition for selected building elements will guarantee that your gift of opportunity for children of trauma will live on for future generations to acknowledge.
