Olympic Oval Donation Policy

Annually, the Olympic Oval at the University of Calgary receives hundreds of requests for various donation items from organizations across the country. The Olympic Oval tries to fulfill as many requests as possible. Submitting a donation request form does not guarantee that the Olympic Oval will fulfill the request, but we endeavour to satisfy as many as we can within our capacity. Unfortunately, the Olympic Oval cannot provide financial support to outside programs or organizations.


1. Donation requests MUST be received in writing, on company letterhead, at least 4 weeks prior to the scheduled date of the event. Requests received less than 4 weeks in advance of the scheduled event will not be considered.

2. Include the following information in your request letter on company letterhead.

  • Date of the Event
  • How the item(s) will be used (raffle, door prize, auction, etc.)
  • What/who the proceeds will benefit
  • A statement/commitment on how this donation will recognize the Olympic Oval and the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary
  • The company/organization mailing address & phone number

3. Donations are limited to those organizations located within the greater Calgary area. Registered charities and minor sport organizations will receive priority.

4. Donations must be picked up from the Olympic Oval within 48 hours of a confirmed donation. Unfortunately many organizations do not pick up their packages so this is a way to ensure both parties are in agreement.
