Tax Credits

Making giving to United Way a benefit to you and our community. Your donation is eligible for charitable tax credits, which can reduce the federal and provincial income tax you pay each year, making a Leadership Donation even more affordable.

See how tax credits can impact your giving by visiting Canada Revenue Agency's website for more information.


Recognizing United Way's most notable philanthropists

Solving poverty is no simple task; it takes time, energy and leadership. The kind of leadership that people in the Alberta Capital Region are known for – people who time and time again face challenges head on and in doing so, inspire others to do the same.

In 2014, Leadership donors gave close to $8 million to our United Way. These generous gifts are thoughtfully invested in our community to help us move beyond managing the symptoms of poverty and closer to ending it.

Thank you to all our donors for your tremendous support this year.
