UNAC Calgary partners with local organizations and provides funding support for engagement opportunities within our local community that contribute to the betterment of society. Together with you, our goal is to draw links between local and global concerns and support positive social change through education and local community initiatives.
The organizations are selected based on overall strategic fit, and their alignment with UNAC Calgary’s focus on promoting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We invest in our community through two streams– External Partnerships and our Funding Program. Please note, our 2019 intake for the Funding Program is now closed. For more information, please contact: [email protected]

2017 Funded Projects
Whereas in previous years, our funding program was open to any non-profit or group running a community benefit project, our approach to community investment changed in 2017 to reflect our strategic goal to achieve quality community partnerships and community engagement. Instead, we created five smaller grants valued at $1,000 open to local nonprofits, and then focused on creating partnerships with two of our longtime successful applicants, whose yearly programs are well aligned with our mandate. This guaranteed funding on their end, and created a relationship based on commitment to partnership and collaboration.
