Funding Opportunities

United Way has been engaging community support for critical programs throughout Central Alberta for more than 50 years.  We believe that the best opportunity to change lives rests in three priority areas. To learn more about these priority areas and the funding opportunities, select their titles – education, income or wellness.

Education – helping kids be all that they can be

Incomemoving people from poverty to possibility

Wellnessbuilding strong and healthy communities      

Our donors, volunteers and staff are committed to investing in programs and projects that address these challenges and demonstrate success in achieving results; partnering with agencies, community collaborations and provincial initiatives that address the underlying issues and promoting the importance of these issues and the difference that we, collectively, can have on the lives of people in our community.
