United Way Membership

As United Way Greater Toronto—a new entity formed by the merging of United Way Peel Region and United Way Toronto & York Region—we will continue our focused work in tackling local poverty in all its forms. Whether you call Peel, Toronto or York Region home, we invite you to join us in our important and ongoing work. Work that our whole community will benefit from.

Become a member of United Way

Members approve the fundamental governance structure of United Way Greater Toronto (UWGT), and are entitled to attend the annual meeting to hear reports on our work in the community, receive the annual financial statements, and vote on the appointment of Trustees and auditors, and other special business requiring approval.

By becoming a member, you are joining our uprising of care to fight local poverty. You will be an important part of helping to build a community where 100% of people experiencing poverty—now or in the future—can break free, triumph and unleash their full potential.

What is Membership?

Being a member of United Way Greater Toronto shows that you care about our community. Membership is open to individuals from all walks of life and organizations from every corner of Peel, Toronto, and York Region—all united in a shared commitment to building a stronger community. Members are entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting to elect Trustees and decide other special business. By coming together in a common cause, we are building a better future. Membership is for one year, based on our fiscal year of April 1 to March 31.

The application period is now closed for the April 2018 to March 2019 membership term. Applications received prior to the closing will be submitted to the Board for approval at the end of March and we will notify members once approved.

Please check back in autumn for information on next year's application.
