The Sien Lok Society of Calgary has been touching the lives of people since 1968. We have a broad legacy of making change happen, and our members are continuously working towards our cause of preserving and protecting the Chinese- Canadian heritage.
Many students have received our scholarships in the past, and we continue to help more people with the support from our generous donors. Donate funds in Calgary to brighten up some precious lives. Your donation will go towards the critical work done by the Sien Lok Society and get you a plaque on a bench with a message of your loved one (who has died/passed away).
The focus for donations for the year 2021 is determined during our annual general meeting. Your donation will support the Sien Lok Society in our benevolent activities to honour Chinese culture in Canada and efforts for the betterment of the community.
Award Recipient of 2017
“I am so excited to be a recipient of the Sien Lok Society of Calgary career program award. I just want to say a big thank you for establishing such an award in Bow College. I am in the Practical Nurse program and so excited to soon be a nurse and make a difference in people’s life and the world at large. My future goals are to be a great nurse and to acquire more skills and education to be a nurse educator. I am from West Africa (Cameroon). I am a Single mother with an awesome 4 year old that gives me hope every day, writing this letter even bring tears into my eyes because of how she has motivated me to work hard and be where I am today. I could not have preferred anywhere else to pursue my career than Bow Valley College because of all the support you give me. I will forever remain grateful even after graduating from the college. May God give you the strength to continue making a difference in people’s life. Thank you so much!”
Sincerely, Maryline Fonbeh
Kids Cancer Care
“After a very difficult year of fundraising due to the pandemic, Sein Lok Society of Calgary provided Kids Cancer Care with a significant donation to help us continue providing the programs and services for children with cancer and their families throughout Calgary and the entire province. Since 1968 the volunteers of this Society have been working hard to make life easier for people in every walk of life. We are honoured to be a part of Sein Lok Society’s philanthropy and look forward to working with them and help our citizens recover from the pandemic.”
