Our communities can’t recover without all of us coming together to help. #BeUnited

Give Today!

United, we can make the biggest difference!

In an extraordinary year, we stepped up in extraordinary ways to help our families, friends, neighbours, and even strangers. We gave each other pep talks, we opened our hearts, we showed kindness, and kept each other safe while focusing on social connections to keep our communities strong.

But  even as we start a new year our work is far from over. There are still Calgarians who are struggling to find support and meet their basic needs. The one thing we know is we’re stronger together, so let’s lean into our strength. If you can, please give today to help Calgarians build a brighter year ahead.

Many small acts of kindness add up to make a big difference for people in need, and your donation has the power to improve local lives.

Even though we can’t gather physically, we can still stand #UnitedApart to support vulnerable Calgarians.

“When you donate to United Way, it’s people’s lives that you are improving, or saving. I don’t know if I would be standing here today if it wasn’t for partnerships like United Way.”
