Your Impact

Mobilizing the power of caring communities to address the most serious local issues
To tackle the toughest problems our communities face, we must first untangle the challenges and truly understand what’s before us. We then draw the right people to the table to address it, advocate for change, and fundraise for support.

Together we then invest our available resources in smart, strategic ways, to ultimately move the needle.

This is the power of the United Way.

How we do it

WE INVEST

Our expert volunteers evaluate and make recommendations to fund programs, collaborations and initiatives that create measurable, lasting change.

WE FUNDRAISE

Whether through fundraising, leveraging grants or securing other resources, United Way seeks to attract support where it is needed most for the thousands who depend on us.

WE ADVOCATE

We speak up and advocate for action on issues that directly impact our community—especially for the most vulnerable, whose voices often go unheard.

WE CONVENE

United Way has the connections and trust within our community to bring together the right people and organizations across all sectors to conquer complex challenges.

WE RESEARCH

We use rigorous data analysis and evidence to inform our decisions and understand the diverse challenges our neighbourhoods face.

Our National Focus Areas

In fulfilling our mission, vision and promise, our activities fall across three focus areas.
All That Kids Can Be
Every kid should have the basic building blocks to stay on track to succeed—in school, and in life.
From Poverty to Possibility
A place to call home, a job and a sense of belonging—we can ensure more people in our communities achieve financial independence and stability.
Healthy People, Strong Communities
Ensuring our communities are great for everyone by improving equity, connections and overall well-being.
