Giving Back to Our Community

Large group of employees from York Region and York Regional Police together holding props for United Way.

Over the past 26 years, and together with our partners at York Regional Police, our employees have raised more than $6 million for United Way through annual employee fundraising campaigns. We ended our 2018 campaign with a $780,575 donation to United Way Greater Toronto – making it our largest to date, the top campaign for United Way in the Region and one of the top two public-sector campaigns in the GTA.

While our employees continue to give back in a big way, our continued success is also thanks to the support from our local community and businesses.

Donation Opportunities

Our campaign team also welcomes community involvement in the campaign through donated items to be featured at upcoming online auctions and events as prizes and/or incentives. These items may come in the form of gift cards, certificates, event tickets, admission passes, gift items and/or professional services (e.g. salon, car detailing, yoga, personal training, etc.).

For donations valued at $100 or more, we are also able to provide a “donation-in-kind” tax receipt (subject to eligibility) and will arrange to have your contribution picked up at your convenience.

Please contact our campaign team if you have any questions, to discuss donations and to learn about how your generosity will be acknowledged.

Sponsoring an Event

There are a number of events being planned for the 2020 United Way campaign, many of which are open to more than just Regional employees. Connect with our campaign team if you have any questions, to discuss sponsorship opportunities and to learn about how your generosity will be acknowledged.
