The mission of the Calgary Cinderella Project is to encourage the completion of high school education by assisting youth facing adversity with the celebration of their academic accomplishments. Our program is discreet and honours diversity and educational achievement, while making a student’s dream come true on their graduation day.
We are currently accepting donations of:
• Long graduation style dresses
• Dresses sized 00-2 and 14+ (although all sizes are welcome)
• Modest long sleeved dresses
All donations must be no more than 5 years old and in excellent condition.
We currently do not accept shorter dresses (above mid calf), wedding dresses, suits, jackets, mens shoes and accessories.
Dress donations can be taken to one of the Stephen Cleaners locations listed below, year round.
We appreciate your generosity!
Many of our supporters choose to give their time, while others choose to support the project financially. Your donation will go directly towards making this day magical for each of our graduates. Donations are eligible for a tax receipt.
Since 2005, the Calgary Cinderella Project celebrates the achievements of aspiring graduates as we fit them for a graduation dress, accessories, and personal care items.
For many students, the path to high school graduation can be a challenging one. The Calgary Cinderella Project exists to meet the growing need for graduates to complete their high school requirements and attend their graduation celebration in the dress of their dreams, regardless of social or financial circumstance. We create an environment of respect so that each student can feel proud to participate in their graduation along with their peers.
Upon arrival, our graduates are matched with Godmothers who assist them through this exciting process. With the encouragement and support of Godmothers, these students can be themselves and feel comfortable no matter what their circumstances are. We believe that graduation is a significant milestone that should be celebrated.
The Calgary Cinderella Project is searching for the perfect space to host our event and storage space throughout the year. If you know of a space that meets our requirements listed, please send an email to Lisa Kindree, Executive Director.
