We've Thrown Out the Umbrella
(and You Should Too)
Dear  ,   
Were you aware that United Way is more than just a fundraiser or an umbrella fundraising organization?

While that's exactly what we were when we started out 51 years ago, we have since recognized that we have a
greater role to play in the community. The work we do today is through the lens of a community impact organization.

Here are some top reasons to throw out the umbrella
Working Together We Make a
Lasting Difference

Last fall we announced the recipients of the first-ever Collective Impact Legacy Grant. The Sylvan Lake Compassion Fund and the Central Alberta Poverty Reduction Alliance are both groups that work collectively to address poverty in Central Alberta.

Community Group Researches Support Needed for Families in the Oil & Gas Sector 
United Way is proud to be a part of the community group Fueling Futures which was formed to support stakeholders in identifying the issues/concerns of families and individuals in this sector. The group also aspires to assist companies and other stakeholders in accessing resources to support Oil & Gas Sector families and individuals with the goal to increase capacity and support retention of a resilient workforce.

In order to better understand how we can support this sector, we created a short survey, targeted to Human Resource professionals in the Oil & Gas sector. If this is your field of work, please consider taking part in this short survey.
