We create opportunities and life-changing experiences for children, youth and families facing financial and/or social barriers by providing event tickets, that would otherwise go unused, to an art, cultural, sport or recreation event

Our Story

John Dalziel sat in the middle of empty seats at the Calgary Saddledome, wondering how those unused tickets could be used.

That was in 1999.

Our Foundation

Many charitable organizations provide children and families with the basic essentials of food, shelter and clothing, whereas Kids Up Front provides nourishment for the spirit, another essential element in healthy development.
