How We Help

Community Investment

To enable social change, United Way follows a rigorous process engaging volunteers to ensure investments are responsive to the community and produce measurable results.

Each year, we accept applications for funding from local social service agencies in one of three priority areas:
All That Kids Can Be: Encouraging children and youth to reach their full potential.
Strong Communities: Enhancing quality of life of adults with disabilities and those in crisis.
From Poverty To Possibility: Meeting basic human needs and moving people out of poverty.

The Community Investment Panel reviews applications for funding and recommends investment decisions to the Board of Directors based on organization strengths, program outcomes, and community need. As a result, successful applicants receive funding for three years enabling them to plan and to act strategically. This creates lasting impact in the community.

“United Way makes a difference in our community by investing in programs that help people from all walks of life. It’s an honour to be part of a team of dedicated volunteers leading the rigorous process to ensure donor dollars are invested where they will create significant impact. I have enjoyed learning about the various agencies, meeting their dedicated leaders and countless volunteers and recognizing all the good work that is being done in our community.”

Janice Jones
Chair, Community Investment Panel
