Campaign Cabinet Members

United Way Alberta Northwest is looking for a Campaign Cabinet for the 2018 Campaign which launches on September 11th. What we're looking for in a Campaign Cabinet is a collection of bright minds and big hearts. United Way’s Campaign Cabinet is the driving force behind our annual fundraising campaign. The Cabinet calls all corners of Alberta Northwest. We're looking for business owners and individuals that leave a mark on our community that's nothing short of extraordinary. The Campaign runs 10 weeks and in that time the Campaign Cabinet works alongside United Way staff to build relationships with local workplaces, donors and community members. Whether you’re looking to meet new people, learn new skills or show your commitment to the community, donating your time and talent is a great way to fulfil your personal goals—while improving the lives of people across our region.

If you have any questions or would like more information about our volunteer opportunities, please contact our Communications Specialist at communications@unitedwayabnw.org. or Call 780-532-1105
