Founded in 2010, YYC Tech Gives is a group of tech companies in Calgary coming together to give back to the local community.
To date, YYC Tech Gives has donated more than $1.5 million to The Calgary Food Bank, which translates to over $7.5 million worth of food.
There are over 50 companies (and growing!) that are part of YYC Tech Gives and events are held throughout the year that all contribute to our lump sum donation made each December.
We are a volunteer driven organization with 100% of all donations today going directly to The Calgary Food Bank. Our volunteers make a huge difference in the community!
The Calgary Food Bank
Established in 1982, the Calgary Food Bank is a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to gathering and distributing quality emergency food to those in need. The Calgary Food Bank is not a government or United Way agency. We rely solely on the generous support of our community and volunteers.
