The impact of your donation
When you give to United Way, your donation has greater impact: United Way keeps abreast of unmet community needs and invests its support where it is needed most.
Every gift – no matter how small – counts:
- $1 per week or $52 per year provides intervention and support for two people in crisis who turn to Distress Centre.
- $2 per week or $104 per year provides three families with emergency food in times of need.
- $3 per week or $156 per year provides care for one child to attend a special needs program for one year.
- $5 per week or $260 per year provides one-on-one counselors for five people in crisis.
- $5 per week or $260 per year provides seven hours of orientation and mobility training to a visually impaired person, ensuring their safety and independence.
- Be a Leadership Donor with a donation of $1,000 or more: $20 per week or $1,000 per year provides two weeks of shelter, food and safety to a woman and her children fleeing abuse.
If you wish to support a different United Way or another registered charity, your can easily direct your donation to another cause by indicating your wishes on your employee payroll contribution pledge form.
