Mission & Accomplishments

Since its beginning as on-site “brass pools,” the Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation has grown into a large and successful organization that has helped numerous Albertans and their communities, providing more than $7.6 million to over 70 non-profit organizations across our province.

Origins

The foundation began on Father’s Day in 1991 when volunteers stood outside liquor stores around Alberta to collect donations for D.A.D.s Day (Dollars Against Diabetes). Those raffles developed into fully-licensed events through the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission and in 2001, the Building Trades of Alberta Charitable Foundation was formalized.

Purpose

The foundation’s focus is not only to raise money for worthy causes, but to also bring unionized labour and industry together at various fundraising events. Events like the annual golf tournament, which we proudly host in memory of Brother John Tackaberry, former director of the BTA Charitable Foundation, bring us together in solidarity to raise funds for important charities.

In 2018, the John Tackaberry Memorial Golf Tournament raised $142,895.06 for the charitable foundation. To date, donations from this tournament include $65,000 to the Secord Community Playground, allowing phase one of construction to begin. The foundation completely funded phase two of this playground as well, a pump track for mountain biking. Also, the Glenrose Pediatric Clinic received $30,000 for a much-needed audiology booth.
