1. Give To Expansion
Vivo will begin construction later in 2021 on a nearly 100,000 square foot expansion that will see a lane pool, indoor park, expanded fitness centre and multiple community meeting and event spaces added to our existing community centre. These spaces will be inclusive, accessible and sustainable, ensuring that everyone can see themselves connecting and playing in community centres like Vivo.
We have already raised $55.5M for this project, mainly from the three government levels, and have $6.5M left to raise. The All In for Community Campaign is our commitment to working alongside the community to raise these funds. Your donation can help us run this final leg. We’ll be releasing more information soon about the full details of this project.
2. Support Vivo Through The COVID Closures
Vivo has continued to support the community’s health and happiness throughout the pandemic. We will continue to do that during this temporary closure. This includes:
- Offering free and subsidized online health and wellness support through Virtual Vivo.
- Maintaining our community centre to ensure our re-opening, when permitted, is as timely and efficient as possible.
If you are able, you can join this effort by making a donation of credits on your account or becoming a one-time or monthly donor to Vivo.
You will receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.
3. Donate Your Credits
Do you have a credit on your account? You can donate your credit to your choice of Vivo campaigns from above.
Any customer who donates credits will receive a tax receipt, which translates into a 25-50% tax credit, depending on the donation amount.
They can also email email@example.com if they aren’t able to fill out the form. GS will convert the credits into donations, and Philanthropy will issue the thank you and tax receipt.

4. Give To The Play Project
The Vivo Play Project brings free, outdoor play to Vivo and to communities across north-central Calgary. The magic happens at play hubs, spaces in the community that support kids and families in creative play. They have adapted their practices to ensure compliance with all COVID-19 health protocols.

5. Give to Membership and Program Subsidy
Vivo provides subsidies for membership and programs to individuals and families who have financial challenges.
We currently have over 600 individuals who utilize subsidized memberships at Vivo, and we think this number could grow in the future. You can help ensure that opportunities to be active and learn new skills are accessible for everyone in our community.
