Make a Difference

Ever want to make the world a better place?

At one time or another we've all looked around and thought, "I want to change the world but the world is such a big place. I don’t know where to start." Well, we have something exciting to tell you…

Together... We are possibility!

Possibility can start with an hour of volunteer time, giving $10 to your favourite charity or even a simple act of kindness like buying a meal for someone in need. Each small act can make a difference. Small things add up and before you know it, we've opened a world of possibilities for people in the community!

We are always happy to talk with passionate people who want to make a difference. You can also check out our upcoming events and volunteer pages for other ways to make an impact.

Are you ready to make your community a stronger, more vibrant place to live?

If you are ready to join us, you can make your contribution to a brighter world though an online donation today.

Why Give to the United Way?

Making a donation to the United Way is the best way to make sure that the community around you has the resources it needs to be strong and vibrant. Whether that means making sure children have a safe place to play, that the homeless get fed or those in need of a safe place to stay are housed, you can be assured that by giving to the United Way, support will be available when and where it is needed most.

With United Way, there's more than one way to support your community. Please consider one of our many flexible giving options.

General or Specific Giving...

At United Way we accept gifts for both our Community Fund, which is distributed to local charities annually, and on behalf of thousands of other Registered Canadian Charities. If there is a particular charity that is close to your heart, United Way is pleased to forward your donation (some conditions apply). Just let us know.

Whether you choose to give to the Community Fund, or to another charity of your choice, all of our giving options are available to you.

Giving Options...
