Your Donations

When you make a donation to United Way Halifax, you’re funding a network of community organizations and initiatives that are focused on changing lives and creating lasting impact in our city.

  • United Way Halifax funds 48 community agencies and several partnerships focused on creating vibrant and safe places to live and solving issues of homelessness, social isolation and food insecurity.

  • Working closely with volunteers, donors, employers, community agencies and government organizations, we stay connected to what’s happening on the ground and know where help is needed most.

  • 100% of your donation stays local - no other charity invests more in our local community than United Way.

A bigger impact for your dollar

We remain effective and keep costs low by maintaining a strong internal-fundraising department, by strategically leveraging our 3,000-plus workplace volunteers, and by taking advantage of donated services and support. Our administrative and fundraising costs are well below the 35 percent cost-revenue ratio recommended by the Canada Revenue Agency, which means a bigger impact for your every dollar.
