Community Impact Council
The Community Impact Council (CIC) and Priority Impact Teams (PIT) are comprised of volunteers who lead the Community Impact strategy for United Way of Central Alberta. Their role is integral to determining how to distribute the available financial resources to the programs and projects that align with the following three priorities.
- EDUCATION - Enabling Kids to Be All That Kids Can Be
- INCOME – Moving People From Poverty to Possibility
- WELLNESS – Promoting Healthy People, Strong Communities
Community Impact Council (CIC) – The Council is a permanent committee that reports directly to the CEO. The predominant task of the Council is to represent the Community Impact work of United Way of Central Alberta. The Council reviews the recommendations of the PIT teams and decides where donor dollars should be invested in accordance with United Way’s three priority areas. For more details on this role review the CIC Volunteer Position Description.
Priority Impact Teams (PIT) – The PIT teams guide investment decisions in agencies, programs and initiatives that align with our three priority areas. PIT teams visit agencies, assess agency funding applications and recommend funding allocations to the CIC. The chair of each PIT crew is also a member of the CIC.
