Take action today and show your local love. Together, we can create a community where everyone thrives.

Why We Need You

Local issues require local solutions.

United Way has been working alongside local agency experts, residents who know their communities best, and donors like you. With your support, we design solutions that prioritize the people and places being left behind. This is how your support works – especially in times of crisis.

That’s why we’re asking you to join us today. To continue standing with your neighbours as we make our way through the current crisis towards something better. It won’t be easy, and it won’t be overnight, but the only way we’ll ever reach our collective goal of a thriving and more equitable community, is by working together, united.

Join us in showing your local love as we address the challenges of today and build a better, stronger tomorrow—for everyone who lives here.

A gift of $25.00 or more will receive a charitable tax receipt.

“Giving is the best therapy for your mind. It’s very satisfying.”

Leadership donors have the power to be instruments of change. They inspire others and create hope for tomorrow.

Gifts of securities are the most tax-effective way to make a donation—providing tax benefits while helping neighbours in need.

Leaving a gift to United Way provides you with the opportunity to leave a legacy by helping future generations across Halton and Hamilton.

United Way’s Tribute donations mark a milestone, a special occasion or help you to honour someone’s memory with a gift.
