Giving back to your community
United Way actively works with all areas of the community to address the root causes of major social issues throughout Calgary and the surrounding area. We could not do this important work without the support of our donors.
Your support helps improve lives right here in your community. Your donation funds community-wide programs, promotes long-term planning initiatives and mobilizes others in our community. By giving back to your community, you can help make Calgary a truly great city for everyone.
In 2012, excluding sponsored events, United Way estimates its fundraising costs to be 11.9% of campaign revenue, estimated at $55 million. This is well below the Canada Revenue Agency standard of 35%.
