Calgary Health Trust in Your Neighbourhood
You may see Calgary Health Trust canvassers going house-to-house to inspire people to become Champions for Health monthly donors.
These monthly donors provide critical, unrestricted funding to create impact where it’s most needed now and where it’s needed next. Whether it is funding cutting-edge equipment for Calgary’s acute care hospitals or improving quality of life for patients, this is the best way for individuals to donate dependable funds to help purchase vital equipment and plan for long-term projects.
Calgary Health Trust is partnered with Global Faces Direct, Canada’s premiere leader in door to door fundraising. Our canvassers are compensated through an hourly wage with no commission. They receive comprehensive training, which allows them to speak on behalf of Calgary Health Trust about our mission and fundraising program.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why does Calgary Health Trust go door-to-door?
Door-to-door is a cost-effective way for the Calgary Health Trust to reach a new demographic of donors that we would not reach otherwise. By coming face to face with our prospective donors, our fundraisers are able to engage in rich dialogue about the impact philanthropy has in transforming health care for Calgarians. Our hope is that more Calgarians become aware of how they can help us grow and sustain our mission to save lives and make world class health care possible.
