Our Commitment

Every year, thousands of people from across our region (including 1,000+ volunteers) come together to support the community through our campaign. That’s because people feel confident that their investment is making a direct and lasting impact. At United Way, we work every day to cultivate that trust. We pride ourselves on being responsible, transparent stewards of the community’s resources and your generous support.

A bigger impact for your dollar

We remain effective and efficient by strategically leveraging our workplace volunteers, and by funding many non-profit organizations that focus their resources on service delivery. Our administrative and fundraising costs are well below the cost-revenue ratio recommended by the Canada Revenue Agency, which means a bigger impact for your every dollar.
