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.
Education – helping kids be all that they can be
Income – moving people from poverty to possibility
Wellness – building 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 of the three priority areas. Each fall, one of the areas opens up for any registered charity or community collaboration to apply. 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, including eligibility criteria, by clicking on their name below.
We also offer two grants year-round. You can learn more about these opportunities, including eligibility criteria, by clicking on their name below.
