Change starts here
As the largest non-governmental supporter of social services in the region, we’re dedicated to creating the opportunities people need to improve their lives and build a better future. Our work is fuelled by groundbreaking research and powerful partnerships, which allow us to identify gaps and responsibly mobilize volunteer and financial resources for the most direct impact: effecting positive and lasting change, right here where we all live, work and raise our families.
A country-wide community
United Way is a worldwide not-for-profit movement. In Canada, we operate in more than 100 communities. Each United Way raises support locally, directly responding to the needs of the community. Each is governed by an autonomous Board of Directors that, along with staff and volunteers, helps to build a caring community.
Responsible stewards of your investment.
In 2014, our combined fundraising and administration costs totalled only 14.8%, which is well below the CRA-recommended 35%.
