Bring United Way Into Your Workplace

Each year, more than 450 workplaces across the Alberta Capital Region run their own United Way employee giving campaigns. These campaigns inspire donors and volunteers to support our community’s most vulnerable, including those living in poverty, and raise much-needed funds that benefit children, families and seniors.

Workplace campaigns provide a fun and impactful way to bring your employee teams together.

Host a speaker at your workplace or event who can talk about United Way’s impact in our community. They show just how your support has changed lives. Speakers include community members who have received help, volunteers, and more.
