Keeping our promise “to invest resources where they are needed most and where they will have the greatest impact”

At United Way, we know that when you donate your hard-earned money to us, you expect it to be used wisely toward making a difference in our community.  That’s why we’re proud of our well-earned reputation for responsible financial management, transparent financial reporting and strong governance practices.

Several independent reports on Canadian charities published over the past several years give United Way top marks for our best practices. Our financial statements are also featured in a university textbook, entitled Modern Advanced Accounting, Seventh Canadian Edition as examples of how charities should report their financial results.

But just as important, we make sure that your dollars are invested in programs and services that change lives today, while making a lasting impact on our community tomorrow.  You can read about the results of your donations to our work with others and stories about the lives changed because of your generosity.

In addition to our Annual Reports and Financial Statements for the past several years, you’ll find more information about how we consult with people and other organizations across our community to inform our work with others.  You can also learn about how and why United Way brings together partners from all sectors to contribute to Community-Wide Initiatives as well as our work in aligning charities with the altruistic interests of companies, foundations and philanthropists to make Targeted Community Investments.  And you’ll find more information about how we deepen the impact of donations to United Way through research, advocacy and the incredible contributions of our volunteers.

If you have any questions about United Way, the results of your donations and our work with others, please get in touch with us.
