Join #nonprofitsvote and pledge your vote in the municipal election! 

Momentum encourages active participation in our political process to build a thriving community for all. Casting a vote, and encouraging others to do so, is the most direct and powerful influence citizens can have in an election cycle. We’re pleased to support The Nonprofit Vote, a new advocacy platform to leverage the strength and impact of Alberta’s 26,000 nonprofits. 

Pledge to vote for social impact in Calgary’s municipal election on October 18.

Creating lasting change through community partnership and empowerment.

Join us for Momentum’s 18th Annual Business Breakfast – a virtual experience!

Friday, October 22, 2021 8:00-8:45 am, MDT

The Business Breakfast is Momentum’s annual fundraising event that brings together Momentum supporters. It was initiated 18 years ago by a group of community champions who believed not only in the power of breakfast, but in the power of building Momentum. 

Whether you’re just learning about us, or have been a supporter for years, this event is an opportunity to catch an intimate glimpse into our world. In 45 minutes, you will be taken on a journey through our programming; from entrepreneurship to money management, and into the trades, you will hear how participants are making change in their lives and revitalizing the local economy. Our goal is for you to learn more about what we do and have fun doing it!
