Working to support local communities beyond Calgary

Social issues don’t just impact Calgary—they also exist outside the city limits. Many residents of these communities commute to Calgary for work and give to United Way of Calgary and Area in our annual campaign.

To support these residents and the surrounding communities where they live, work and raise families, United Way has created community partnerships to support programs and collaborations in Chestermere, Cochrane, High River, Okotoks, Strathmore, and Airdrie. By keeping donations local, we’re building healthier, stronger communities for everyone in the surrounding area of Calgary.
