Working locally to support all communities

United Way of Calgary and Area understands that social issues exist outside the city limits and support is needed in Calgary’s surrounding communities. We also recognize that many residents of these communities commute to Calgary for work and give to United Way of Calgary and Area in our annual campaign.

This has led to community partnerships to support programs and collaborations in the Calgary area - including Chestermere, Cochrane, High River, Okotoks, Strathmore and Airdrie. By keeping donations local, we're building healthier, stronger communities for everyone.
