Rather than go with traditional “brick and mortar” recognition of our donors, which is costly, we are going with electronic recognition on three large screen monitors inside the Field-house itself. Our donors will be recognized on these prominent screens on a continual basis during all public function in the facility. The name you provide will be on a picture of a brick, you can put your donor name, full family name, or the name of your child that was in the community band in the past. This is called our Virtual brick program.
Leave your Legacy
The cost of a “Virtual brick” is $300.00 and we have a way turning that into more money than you actually donate. ATB Financial has a program called ATB Cares, that will top up your donation with an additional 15%. This program begins every May and maxes out at $200 000 per year.
Here is the link to the ATB cares donate page. https://www.atbcares.com/donate
When you click on the link, in the box type Red Deer Royals Alumni. It is very important that you enter in the comment field the name that you would like on the brick, and who is making the donation. If no info is entered, we will not know what name to put on the virtual brick, or who to send a tax receipt to. Yes your donations to the Alumni Association is tax deductible….. You can also use the ATB cares donate page to make any amount of a donation that you would like. We welcome any donation, even if small. Please also fill out info in the memo box who we can send a tax receipt to.
Donations other way
We also except donations that are not done through the ATB cares link. If you are one that would like to make a donation to the “Virual brick campaign” or any other donation personally or by check. We most certainly welcome those donations also. Please contact one of the listed people for more information on how to send in your donation..

Our Financial Needs
While the Royals Alumni Association has raised almost $2 million for the project over the past decade. We still have a ways to go to pay our half of the costs of the amazing Field-house facility. Considering the Royals had their first rehearsal in the Field-house in April of 2017, time is definitely of the essence to finalize the Alumni’s dedication to this amazing facility for all of Red Deer.
