United Way of Winnipeg recognizes that many realities will affect the contribution that our strategies make towards the ultimate goal – all Winnipeggers having access to the basic requirements for a good life.
Some of these realities exist in our environment (the economic, political, social, cultural, demographic and philanthropic realities) while other realities exist within each of us (our interests, attitudes, values, needs, and capacities).
This environmental scan, completed in December 2008, looks at some of these realities to provide our volunteers, staff, partners and all interested Winnipeggers with a current and comprehensive body of relevant information.
We will use this information to foster reflection, inform our planning and enhance evidence-based decision-making as we strive to advance the common good and create opportunities for a better life for all Winnipeggers. Additionally, realizing that United Way cannot do this alone, we will use the scan as a common starting point for working with others and stimulating collective action that will create long-term solutions and long-lasting and sustainable change.
