Sparks of Gratitude

Recognize and celebrate your colleagues with a message of thanks and raise funds for your neighbours in need.

Who are you thankful for?

Celebrate your peers with the Sparks of Gratitude campaign – a fun way to show appreciation for your colleagues and raise funds for United Way at the same time.  

Your gift has a double impact: showing recognition and raising funds for United Way. This year, The United Way and UCalgary are working together to tackle issues like the inflation crisis through the lens of four key outcomes: Socioeconomic Well-being, Mental Health, Social Inclusion and Healthy Relationships. The social issues that are facing our community cannot be ignored. They can be tough to see and will take all of us to solve. A better tomorrow starts with you.

Write messages of thanks, encouragement or just let someone know how they make UCalgary a better place for all!

  • Donate $10 and receive five “sparks” to share with your colleagues.  
  • Collect your “sparks” from your area’s United Way cabinet representative.

Help make tomorrow better with United Way

United Way continues to make a lasting impact in our communities by taking dollars raised and strategically investing in collaborations, change initiatives and agency partners that strengthen our city. Donate now or learn more about UCalgary’s United Way Workplace Campaign.
