We are making an impact in your community.
Dear  ,

The most commonly asked question is "What impact are you having in MY community?"  
It's important to remember that all donations to United Ways across Canada go back to the community where you live and work. Just because your head office may be in Calgary, your donation will be directed to your community of Central Alberta. It's also important to remember that when we say "your community" we are talking about all of Central Alberta.
We also do not invest funds by town. We invest in solving issues in our Central Alberta community. Agency partners who can deliver programs and services that align with the strategies we have identified, which address those issues, are how we invest your donations.
But we take it one step further. We monitor those programs and services to ensure that what they promised when applying for funding is actually happening. Part of this monitoring process is to identify how many unique clients are served and in what area of Central Alberta. We divide up our area by north, south, east, west and the City of Red Deer. Because of all that data collected, we are able to then report back to what's happening in "your community". We have included an example of the impact we are having in the Eastern part of the region. 
We hope this helps answer that important question of "What impact are you having my MY community". Because frankly, we're improving lives right across the region thanks to your support.
