Every dollar raised in Cochrane, stays in Cochrane.
We need your help to strengthen social serving organizations who are working tirelessly to meet the needs of our community!
Cochrane FCSS and the United Way of Calgary and Area have a formal partnership agreement, whereby United Way provides annual funding and the FCSS Advisory Board members research and assess issues in the community to ensure donations are distributed to local non-profit organizations that provide initiatives and programs that address the social well-being of individuals and families.
Over the last five years the United Way provided over $365,500.00 to local organizations working to address complex issues such as poverty, mental health, social isolation, domestic violence, intergenerational trauma and food security.
As part of our agreement with the United Way, the FCSS Advisory Board is required to hold an annual fundraiser to increase the funds available to local groups in our community.
This year, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with Cochrane Now to hold a month-long fundraising campaign called Give a Little Love. The campaign will kick-off on September 14 and will wrap up with a big event on October 14 with Cochrane Now live on location. Every dollar raised in Cochrane, will stay in Cochrane, and will support local organizations working to address social issues.
Supporting those who need it the most.
