Southern Alberta Ethnic Association is a member based not for profit charitable organization. The SAEA Board governs the association and hosts a yearly AGM. SAEA is located and operates out of the Multicultural Centre. 

Your donation to SAEA will support cultural groups & volunteers to plan and execute programs, events and future growth of our association. SAEA represents a wide diversity of ethnic societies and clubs in southern Alberta by highlighting different global cultures, languages, cuisines, cultural dancing, performances and ethnic music, as well as thoughts and philosophies.

SAEA has been an iconic organization representing some of the most culturally and technically diverse groups in our multicultural nation.  SAEA is culturally significant to Lethbridge and Southern Alberta to continue to educate our guests on the diversity in Southern Alberta and its importance. We do this through cultural events, presentations, workshops, language classes and festivals. 


SAEA supports our members that specialize in their unique skills, cultural food and talents. SAEA helps to support smaller groups to showcase their cultural food, items, dance, music and artifacts in many different ways. 

An SAEA staff member would be happy to help you and accept a donation for SAEA assisting us in sharing our mission and vision. Donation receipts can be given. Please contact us with any questions you may have.

Please see our chartable organization information with the Community Foundations of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta. Continue to build our legacy for the next 50 years.

You can make a donation via etransfer, cheque, cash, debit or credit card.
