Join us for a special event in Calgary
The Annual UNICEF Water for Life Gala is one of Calgary’s premier charity events with a delicious four course dinner, sensational auction items and spectacular entertainment.
Water is an essential right and a vital need and although significant improvements have been made, globally more than 663 million people still lack access to a safe drinking water source. With the generous support of many donors, UNICEF leads innovative initiatives to bring life-saving water to all children.

Or... Make an Online Donation
You can support the Calgary Life Gala by donating online.
Or... Buy a Water Pump for a Community
This gift provides one water pump to improve the lives of 150 children in a local community. A local water source means girls who typically miss school to collect water will have a chance at an education and a brighter future. The water pump is a gift that will continue to give for up to 10 years, supplying clean water for drinking, bathing and household.
