United Way Membership

Become a member of United Way

Voting Members of United Way are essential to the important work that we make possible in communities across Peel, Toronto and York Region. For us to be able to tackle poverty and related #UNIGNORABLE local issues, we rely on Members to approve the fundamental governance structure of United Way Greater Toronto (UWGT) by participating in our Annual General Meeting. At the AGM, Members vote on the appointment of Trustees, auditors, and other special business, receive our annual audited financial statements, and hear reports on our work in the community.

Show your local love for community by becoming a Member, and you’ll be helping to make critical social issues like poverty #UNIGNORABLE.

What is Membership?

Both individuals and organizations are eligible to become Members*, with similar rights for both. If you meet the Membership qualifications (one of the following: 2019 UWGT donor; 2019 UWGT volunteer; or you live or work in Peel, Toronto or York Region), we invite you to apply for Membership for the April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021 term. Our Board of Trustees will review and approve Memberships no later than March 31, 2020.

Our Membership application process is simple, accessible, and free. Please complete the Membership application online or download, complete, and return a hard copy. Though there is no cost to Membership, to be considered, your application must be received by March 5, 2020.
