Partaker Wealth Management Helping our Neighbours and Friends Through Corporate Donations
"There's nothing more rewarding than giving back and making a difference in the lives of people in this great community." ~ Frank Guzzetta
Over the past several years, Partaker Wealth has made it a priority to give back to the community we live and work in. We have been able to reach out to some very hardworking and essential organizations while encouraging our business partners who have in turn matched some of our contributions.
If you have a local charity or organization that is close to your heart, we would love to hear about it!
We are all in this together, and together we will succeed.

Wood’s Homes is a children’s mental health centre. We provide treatment and support to children, youth and families with mental health needs.
Founded as an orphanage by Reverend George Wood in 1914, we are a place of caring and trust. A place you can turn to for help when you don’t know what else to do, or when you have nowhere else to turn.
Wood’s Homes is based in Calgary (on three large campuses and in several neighborhoods across the city) with locations in Lethbridge, Strathmore and Fort McMurray. Our 500 staff and 100 volunteers provide 40+ programs and services for 20,000 children and their families every year.
We are accredited through Accreditation Canada and have earned two Leading Practice Awards, and Exemplary Standing status three times.
Wood’s Homes is nationally recognized for our innovative and groundbreaking services. We are proud of our research in children’s mental health. In 2001, we established a Research Department and in 2016, we launched the Wood’s Homes Research Chair in Children’s Mental Health, in a partnership with the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Social Work.

Rowan House Society
Safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration and empowerment are the core values at the Rowan House.
Over the past 20 years Rowan House Emergency Shelter has moved from a tiny 2 bedroom basement suite near Black Diamond where we opened in January 2000, to a state of the art, high security 24 bed facility in High River. Since opening, Rowan House has provided family violence prevention and intervention services to communities in Southern Alberta.
Originally named Eagle Women’s Emergency Shelter, the shelter was only large enough to house two women with up to three children each. Funding for outreach was later secured and outreach support began in 2003.
Go to https://www.rowanhouse.ca/ and learn more about how the Rowan House has evolved over the last 20 years, their rebuild after the flood of 2013 and the plans moving forward to ensure Southern Alberta families will continue to be supported.
