The PAA Psychological Services Funds and the Amina Beecroft Endowment Fund were established in 2005 with the primary purpose of subsidizing psychological services to Albertans who could not otherwise afford such services.
The PAA Psychological Services Funds is the result of a partnership between the PAA, the Edmonton Community Foundation, the Calgary Foundation and the Canadian Mental Health Association, Alberta Division. Donations are made through the Edmonton Community Foundation and the Calgary Foundation, and are tax deductible. On a yearly basis, the Edmonton Community Foundation and the Calgary Foundation disburses a percentage of the fund to the Canadian Mental Health Association, Alberta Division, who in turn uses the funds to pay for psychological services to Albertans who are in need of psychological services, but who could not otherwise afford them.
Businesses, psychologists, and members of the public who make donations of $20.00 or more will receive a charitable donation receipt for taxation purposes.
Here are some ways to become involved:
- Donations by cheque or credit card.
- Pledge plans: Individual or with employer participation.
- Bequests of financial support or property in a last will and testament.
- Gift of life insurance.
- An endowment may be established to provide a continuing source of income for a specific purpose. It is a meaningful way to create a permanent remembrance for a special person and their accomplishments, for a group or for a particular cause.
