Leave a Legacy

It is the time of year when many look to donate to organizations and causes that mean a lot to them. Did you know the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum has initiated a “Legacy” program?

Legacy giving will ensure the continuation of recognizing Alberta’s great athletes, teams, and builders. Gifts will assist with the preservation of sports history and the stories that will inspire all for years to come.

Your Legacy Gift will support many programs such as the Hall of Fame Gallery, research, educational programs, collection expansion, capital improvements and much more. With your help, we can continue to grow and celebrate achievements in Alberta sports. 
Leaving a Legacy can include planned giving, a one-time gift, a monthly gift, and many other opportunities. We are grateful and appreciative for the generosity of our supporters and friends, and ask you to JOIN OUR TEAM. Please contact Donna Hateley, Managing Director, at donna@ashfm.ca or 403-341-8614 for more information. 
The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is a recognized not-for-profit charitable organization that depends on gifts such as the Legacy Program. As a charitable organization, we are able to provide a tax receipt for your Legacy Gift.

New and Exciting Exhibits

“DEFINING MOMENTS”

The Injuries That Do Not Define Us


This exhibit explores the journey of six athletes from their early careers, through serious injuries, and their experiences in overcoming the injuries to continue in sport. These six athletes chose to rise above their injuries by embracing challenges and hard work. In doing so, they discovered their defining moment.

2019 CANADA WINTER GAMES BID VESSEL


Red Deer’s bid established them as a community ready to successfully host the largest multi-sport and cultural event for youth in the nation in 2019. When Red Deer’s Bid Committee submitted their bid document to the Canada Games Council office in Ottawa, they sent it in style – in a miniature chuckwagon.
2019 Games Board Chair Lyn Radford said, “The chuckwagon is a representation of when Central Alberta was originally settled. Central Alberta was built on the philosophy of helping your neighbor and that legacy of giving continues today, as demonstrated by the incredible generosity of our volunteer community.”  Contained inside the chuckwagon was Red Deer’s bid document for the 2019 Canada Winter Games. 

The chuckwagon will be on display at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum.

Congratulations to Battle of Alberta ticket winner Brittney Chartrand!

battle possible.
