Club Summer Camp: Making summer more than just fun
Summers for Imisi Oragesin and Kwaku Agyemang didn’t used to be all that exciting. But things changed when the two friends began attending the Albion Boys & Girls Club Summer Camp.
United Way Toronto supports a vital network of critical services across the city
When you give to United Way’s Community Fund, you support a network of 200 membership agencies providing vital social services to hundreds of thousands of people throughout the city—single parents, abused women, young children and teenagers, the elderly, the physically challenged, the homeless, and the many new immigrants who need help to realize their dreams of a better life in Canada. The Community Fund helps in the short term by meeting immediate needs—helping individuals when they need it most—and in the long term by addressing the root causes of social problems through a systematic approach that works to change whole communities.
United Way Toronto is the only major funding organization that delivers significant core operating support to social service agencies. This base support of funding provides stability and allows agencies the flexibility to develop and respond to emerging needs of the communities they serve. In addition to core funding, United Way Toronto offers time limited special grant initiatives such as Focus on Youth, Newcomer Grants, Resident Action Grants, Success by Six, Winter Relief Fund, and the Toronto Enterprise Fund.
Our member agencies receive our long-term, ongoing financial support, so they can plan ahead
In order to become and remain a United Way member, agencies must meet strict membership standards and performance criteria. They must be located in the City of Toronto and be incorporated, non-profit social service organizations with charitable status. Once a member, agencies are regularly reviewed through our volunteer review process.

Member agencies receiving grant funding
While our member agencies have accomplished a great deal, the challenges are significant, and they alone are unable to address all of the issues in the city. In response to community needs, United Way Toronto funds a variety of granting programs—improving access to services and helping to meet growing demands. A complete list of grant recipient agencies is located in our latest annual report.
