Take your organization to a whole new level with the GAIN Team

Are you a non-profit that wants to increase its capacity to meet the needs of the people you serve?

In rapidly-growing communities across the Calgary area—and especially in the current economic climate—many non-profits are feeling the strain of trying to keep up with the demand for their valuable services. With limited budget to hire more staff or consultants, building the capacity of your current staff is a sustainable and cost-effective solution.

United Way’s Group for Assisting and Improving Non-profits (GAIN) Team is a volunteer group of highly-skilled private and public sector leaders with a passion for building the capacity of non-profit organizations and turning business challenges into growth opportunities. These volunteers focus on five key areas to increase the overall sustainability of your organization:

  • Board Governance Assessment and Supports
  • Strategy and Business Plan Renewal
  • Financial Planning
  • Leadership Coaching
  • IT Assessment

“The GAIN Team created a thought-provoking, practical learning opportunity that was immediately transferrable to the strategy and leadership of our organization.”

Jeff Dyer, Former Executive Director, Accessible Housing

Using their corporate experience to offer a new perspective, The GAIN Team can partner with your organization to leverage its strengths and assets to meet the evolving needs of our community—completely free of charge. We share the goal of building a resilient and caring community where everyone thrives, and are invested in taking every opportunity to ensure people receive the supports and services they need.
