What is a Campaign?

The United Way Community Campaign is an annual event in which people join together to raise awareness and funds for United Way to invest in our community.  Thousands of volunteers, donors and organizations from across our community – business, labour, the private and public sector, partners and organizations, both large and small, join us to strengthen the community.

We are a leader in bringing together the resources needed to improve lives and strengthen communities. We invest in preventive social services throughout our community.  Together, with a network of community partners, we’re building a healthy, caring and inclusive community.

United Way’s Annual Community Campaign is vital to the success of our community and the people who call it home.  We invite you to become a part of something big.  We are a catalyst for action with the support of organizations and individuals devoted to strengthening our community.

A campaign is made up of four distinct areas of fundraising:

  • Corporate Contributions
    Donations made on behalf of a business. Tax receipt issued by United Way.
  • Employee Contributions
    Donations made through payroll deductions. A donor would make a pledge and have it deducted from their pay cheque over the course of the year. The tax benefit would be recorded on the employee’s T4.
  • Individual Contributions
    Donations made by individuals and receipted by United Way.
  • Special event fundraising
