Past Foundation Accomplishments

Through many generous donations, and the love and support of our family and friends the A.L.L Children’s Charity has supported many children and their families throughout Western Canada.  This is a list of those projects.

Make a Wish Foundation

makeawishlogo

We are currently focused on granting special wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions through donations to Make-A-Wish Foundation in both Northern and Southern Alberta.  Granting these wishes not only fill the child and their family with hope and joy but research has shown that these memorable experiences help the child gain strength and hope. These brave kids use this to help them navigate through their future medical treatments.

WheelChair Sports Albertastacks-image-8548f8b

In the fall of 2014 we pledged to raise $40,000 to purchase 20 junior sport wheelchairs for WSA. These specialty chairs have been ordered and will arrive soon. This new equipment is state of the art and will have a huge impact on these young athletes lives.

I am very grateful to ALL Charity for the opportunity of receiving a new chair for wheelchair basketball.  This new chair will be a lot lighter than the one I use now and will hopefully help increase my speed and shorten my turning distance. This chair will help to take my ball playing to the next level. – Jon Bilan

Getting a new basketball wheelchair is beyond amazing and I was so touched by the Avery Linton Foundation’s support for this awesome sport. I have been playing in a borrowed chair ever since I started playing in this sport, and now that I have my own I feel my confidence as a

player will be much improved. Thank you!!! – Savannah

Avery Linton Nature Studiostacks-image-675aa16

During 2013/14 we raised $200,000 to fund the building of a classroom at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. This facility is used daily for children’s programs, birthday parties & day camps. The room has interactive exhibits that provide a hands-on learning experience. It also features high-tech equipment that supports both teaching and learning.

The Valley Zoo Development Society, and the Edmonton Valley Zoo had the great privilege of working with the Avery Linton Legacy Foundation along side the Linton and Newton families as they raised funds to name of the classrooms at the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s newly opened Ed-Venture Lodge.

The Avery Linton Nature Studio is the first classroom in the Ed Venture Lodge and has the stunning feature of interior wall that matches the beautifully designed and constructed outer rammed earth wall in the Entry Plaza.  The Edmonton Valley Zoo runs programs for over 35,000 children annually.  Our school and summer programs sell out faster than any other facility in the Edmonton area, and we are seeing double digit increases each year.  The new classrooms in the Ed Venture Lodge enabled us to increase our capacity and ability to offer increased programming for Edmonton and Area families.

The funds raised during this project will contribute to the next phase of development of the Edmonton Valley Zoo, Nature’s Wild Backyard.

Nature’s Wild Backyard will replace the traditional family areas of the Edmonton Valley Zoo with four new zones for children to learn about their environment, conservation, habitat and animal stewardship through immersing themselves in the zones the animals we share this planet with live in.  Above, Under, Between and On the land. The incredible gift from the Avery Linton Legacy Foundation not only helps us provide programming for children every year, but will help build a magical place that fosters the love of animals and nature for many generations to come.
