The Alberta Retired Teachers’ Association, through its Charitable Foundation, aims to help all Alberta seniors find appropriate housing and health services, and to provide support for seniors where English is a second language. To achieve this mandate, the Foundation partners with likeminded charitable organizations and specifically funds targeted programs to make an impact on seniors living in Alberta.

As a member of ARTA, a small portion of your membership fee goes to support the foundation. Do more to support the foundation – and invest in your own future – with a donation directly to the Charitable Foundation. ARTA further supports the charitable foundation by absorbing the operating costs of the foundation.

ARTCF prides itself on its low operating costs compared to other charitable organizations. Less than 5% of funds received goes to operational overhead – over 95% of donations directly impact and assist seniors in Alberta. With your donation to The Alberta Retired Teachers Charitable Foundation, you’re not just helping other seniors and retired teachers in Alberta — you’re helping yourself too!
