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.

Educationhelping 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.

We offer three-year grants in each priority area listed above. In the fall of 2017 the Wellness priority area is open to any registered charity or community collaboration that address the goals and objectives outlined in the Wellness framework. You can learn more about each of these priority areas by clicking on their name above.

We are now using an online application and review process. On our grant site you will (eventually) find all of the funding opportunities that are currently available. For the interim the Professional Development and Capital & Equipment grants are accessible below. Click on the button below to access our grant site.
