Supporting our agencies
Supporting a network of community agencies
When you give directly to United Way, you’re helping support a network of community agencies that provide 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.
Our agencies are helping in the short term by meeting immediate needs—supporting 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.
