Be the catalyst.

The Calgary Youth Science Fair is completely volunteer-run, and relies solely on funding from individual donors, corporate sponsors and fundraising initiatives without any financial support from the school boards. The CYSF is dedicated to supporting and recognizing Calgary students’ pursuit of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the lens of the scientific method and the development and application of academic principles. 

Students participating in the CYSF have been making science discoveries for over 50 years. Join with our generous CYSF donors to continue this incredible legacy!

The CYSF proudly maintains profiles with three online donation sites in order to allow you to make your donation through the portal that works for you! Depending on where you work, who you know and how you bank there may be a benefit to you of selecting a particular site. Your workplace may have a matching or incentive program as part of a workplace giving initiative, your friends may be working together to maximize your charitable impact, or your bank may chip in a little extra. Conversely, you may just like the look of one site better or simply pick the first one you see, no matter how you decide to donate, we appreciate your support!

We look forward to sharing our CYSF Wish List with you. Student awards, medals, printing, video, exhibiting services, and graphic design as well as other items and professional services are welcomed!
