Thanks to donor support, United Way partners with high impact organizations to create lasting change by investing in agency partners, collaborations, and change initiatives. We have one of the lowest fundraising costs in Canada, with only 10% – 12% of dollars raised allocated to fundraising and operating costs. The rest is invested in the community.

We work with the accounting firm Deloitte LLP, ensuring our financial statements are accurate and we operate in a fiscally responsible manner. With a focus on outcomes, we strategically deploy these resources to measurably affect the lives of all Calgarians.
