Red Deer has long identified a need for a unique building dedicated exclusively to charitable activities and maximizing social impact. The Centre for Social Impact (CSI) will be an inspiring place where charities and non-profit organizations can collaborate; a place centrally located where families can readily access a variety of supports and services; a place where organizations can share resources and minimize rising operating costs; and a place with in-house maintenance and operational supports.
The Centre for Social Impact will also directly benefit many charities and non-profits in Red Deer and Central Alberta. The Professional Building, located on Ross Street, will become the Centre for Social Impact for the purpose of supporting charities and non-profits. The building was acquired via a donation from Maclab Properties Group, a private real estate organization with a long history of strong support for Alberta’s non-profit community.
