How Do We Do It

Elevate meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month from September to May. At these meetings we discuss the business of other clubs, plan and execute our community volunteer schedule and our own fundraising initiatives.

In addition to this we volunteer a minimum of once per month with local charities such as community kitchens. The amount we volunteer can vary based on the time of year.

Being a part of the Canadian Progress Club means we have great support from other Calgary clubs. We get together with these clubs frequently to either help out at their events or socialize and catch up on past activities.

Elevate has one main fundraising event, the Worldwide WOW Photo Contest, and participates in various smaller fundraising initiatives year round such as Stampede events, social nights, fundraising galas and fundraising raffles.
