Over $8 Million in funding for 809 local charity programs since 2005!

Who are we?

We are a LOCAL organization that provides funding and support to charities and programs throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, through our Community Fund grants.  To date, we have invested over $8 Million dollars to charities  through our community fund right here at home since 2005, and over $2.4 Million to other registered charities through our donor choice service!

What do we do?

We partner with  workplaces and organizations that help us raise funds to be distributed back into the communities that we all work and live in.  We provide financial support to initiatives that make our communities stronger and more accessible for everyone – shelters, employment programs, food banks, playgrounds, community centers, camp experiences for sick children, housing initiatives and so much more.  We give where the need is greatest in our community.

How do we do it?

We help workplaces run fundraising campaigns  through payroll deductions, one time donations and special events.  We help employees discover that when they’re supporting their United Way, they’re helping not just one organization, but many organizations with just one easy donation.  To find out how you can get involved, click here
