Leaders like you can ignite an equitable recovery

A successful recovery from this pandemic involves all of us. That’s why we’re asking you to make a Leadership donation of $1,200 or more to United Way this year. You will play a vital role in creating a recovery that harnesses the incredible power, resiliency and skills of the people that make the GTA such a vibrant, diverse and welcoming place to live.

Your gift will be matched.

Make your first Leadership gift of $1,200+ to United Way Greater Toronto before Dec. 19, 2021, and the 407 ETR Gift Match will double it. Already a Leadership donor? Increase your gift before Dec. 19, 2021, and 407 ETR will match that increase. Learn more.

How you can help

We’re inviting you to join us today by supporting our $105-million 2021 Community Recovery Campaign. Your generous Leadership gift made directly to United Way can help meet the needs of today and begin to break down systemic barriers for a more equitable tomorrow.

What you make possible

More than a year into this pandemic, and we have already come through so much together. By partnering with local agencies, government and supporters like you, United Way was able to provide a coordinated community response to COVID-19.

Looking back, the issues that United Way champions were issues that impacted me, including supports for newcomers and youth empowerment. At our core, we all want to matter—to look back and know that we made a difference.
