Your gift can change lives

When you give to United Way, you’re sustaining a vital social safety net that provides hundreds of thousands of people across Peel, Toronto and York Region with much-needed support. Thanks to people like you, our network of agencies is there 365 days a year—during times of crisis, and in the months and years that follow. 

Whether you’re giving a gift directly, giving a gift in honour or giving a gift in-kind, you’re ensuring this network addresses the #UNIGNORABLE issues affecting neighbourhoods across the GTA, meets local needs and makes sure no one is left behind. 

Your donation will: 

  • Provide flexible funding to community services so they can respond quickly to emerging needs 
  • Ensure basic needs—food, shelter and employment—are accessible 
  • Help vulnerable people find shelter and stay housed 
  • Help residents in their efforts to support and strengthen their neighbourhoods 
  • Get people working again, including our youth 

You can help people thrive

“A lot of young people are going to need United Way employment programs like the one that helped me start my career. You’re making sure they have that support.”
