United Way of Quinte
Each and every day, local United Ways across Canada
work in communities to change living conditions for the better. The issues we face may vary, but the values
and purpose that drive us are the same: to strengthen our communities and
improve quality of life for all Canadians.
From coast to coast, there are over 100 United
Ways. Next to governments, the United
Way Movement is the largest funder of the voluntary and social services sector
in Canada. In 2014, United Ways raised
upwards of $500-million which is re-invested in local communities to support
programs and services directed at improving the social conditions of Canadians.
United Way of Quinte operates in all of Hastings &
Prince Edward Counties and since its inception in 1958, the organization has
raised more than $34 million to support local not-for-profit health and social
Last year, our community raised $2,093,603 which assisted us in providing funding support to 43 local not-for-profit
health & social service agencies offering services to approximately 1 in 3
people within our geographic boundaries.
United Way of Quinte would like to
extend our immense gratitude and thanks to each and every supporter, be that in
time, money, or expertise, for helping to ensure we are consistently successful
in growing to meet the needs of our community.
Together, we will bring lasting, positive change to help people live
with hope, dignity, and a sense of belonging.
