OUR VISION

Our community is measurably better because of the work of United Way/Centraide Ottawa and others.

OUR MISSION
To bring people and resources together to build a strong, healthy, safe community for all.

OUR PROMISE
To invest resources where they’re needed the most, and where they’ll have the greatest impact.

Building community… changing lives.


In 2006, United Way/Centraide Ottawa made a record community investment to support
177 projects, programs and partnerships, in 98 different community organizations.

In the 2006 campaign, United Way/Centraide raised a record $28.2 million.


MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD
A “New Space” — 2006 signalled significant change
for United Way/Centraide Ottawa – change that
moved us into a new space, in more ways than one.
We launched the year with a move to a new physical
space at 363 Coventry Road. More significantly, with the
hard work and support of donors, volunteers, partners
and staff, 2006 also marked a number of achievements
that represent the new space United Way/Centraide
occupies as a community building organization.

Our new headquarters offer a more central, accessible


location and provide much-needed meeting space that
has benefited United Way/Centraide and the community
we serve. Our space is available for community groups
and agencies that need meeting facilities. When our
six new Impact Councils made up of close to 100
community volunteers launched into action early in
the year, we had the space we needed for many meetings
and consultations. And we are now expanding our
role as a convenor and host of community groups and
organizations choosing to work with us and others to
ensure coordination of service and program delivery and
to affect social change. Our vision for our new home as
a true community space has become a reality.

We also moved closer to achieving our larger vision


— that our community will be measurably better as a
result of the work of United Way/Centraide and others.
With the deep and specialized knowledge of our Impact
Council members, we developed impact plans that focus
investments strategically in six impact areas. This was
in addition to the work carried out by the dedicated
volunteers who serve on the Board of Directors, the
Campaign Cabinet, the Community Services Cabinet

This RCMP volunteer team rolled up their sleeves to give a fresh coat of paint to Ottawa Community Housing as part of Day of Caring 2006.
“For us, it’s a chance to make a difference in our community,” says Bogena Crockett, RCMP team leader. “This group of community houses
is special to us because it’s located in the neighbourhood where we work.”
PEOPLE...
United Way/Centraide Ottawa is Fuelled by Community Engagement

Each year we mobilize more than 14,000 volunteers. The engagement of these volunteers is essential to our success on many fronts. It allows us to keep our campaign
costs among the lowest in North America — about 15 percent; it allows us to leverage additional resources such as “loaned representatives” and donations of gifts
in-kind; we benefit from the knowledge and skills of senior volunteers who provide governance, financial and strategic counsel and oversight; and hundreds of agency
speakers and those whose lives have been changed generously share their personal stories every year.

Here are a few of the many examples of our community’s engagement during 2006.

218 positions filled by senior volunteers who 151 Speakers’ Bureau volunteers (agency 1200 Day of Caring volunteers lent a helping hand

the 2006 precedent-setting achievement.*

RESOURCES...
2006 Resource Development Achievements Reached New Heights

The 2006 achievement of $28.2 million marks the largest amount raised by United Way/Centraide in our 73-year history. Over 10 weeks, thousands of campaign
volunteers canvassed colleagues, held potlucks, book sales, loonie-toonie races and many other fundraising events to help achieve the campaign goal.
These were the real heroes of the campaign. The groundswell of grassroots support showed that we are indeed a very caring community.

Some outstanding resource development high points in 2006 include:

$28.2 million 2006 campaign result $2.22 million — donated by 183 major donors $500,671 growth in Endowment assets which

a burden to volunteer and be a special part of
someone’s life. You end up getting so much out

United Way/Centraide Ottawa Invested a Record $21.5 Million in 2006

To fulfill our mission of building a strong, healthy, safe community for all, as always, in 2006 we supported a variety of essential agency programs. We also invested
resources into partnerships and projects that work on long-term solutions to complex community challenges — like Ottawa’s aging population and new Canadians
seeking employment and other supports. We work with all kinds of groups to invest resources where they are needed the most: networks, corporate sponsors, labour,
community groups, agencies and government partners.

Our priorities are well defined. We invest resources Here are highlights of United Way/Centraide’s community investment in 2006, from dollars raised in 2005:
