Red Cross & United Way Community Partnerships Table

The Canadian Red Cross and the United Way Fort McMurray and Wood Buffalo collaborated to establish the Community Partnerships Table (the “Table”). The Table reviewed applications for funding requests of $100,000 or more, or requests that may have had a wider impact on the community. The mandate of the Community Partnerships Table was to evaluate pre-qualified funding applications that were submitted to the Canadian Red Cross and/or United Way Fort Murray and Wood Buffalo and make strategic recommendations regarding those applications in a collaborative, transparent manner. For more information on the Community Partnerships Table click here.
