United Way Team

The Regional Municipality of York and York Regional Police have received the most prestigious ranking from United Way Greater Toronto and a nation-wide communications award of excellence from the Canadian chapter of the International Association of BusinessCommunicators (IABC) for the organizations’ 2017 to 2018 employee fundraising campaign for United Way.

The Local Leaders List, unveiled on February 8 – the day United Way Greater Toronto announced a record-breaking $110.3 million campaign – acknowledges organizations going above and beyond in 2018. York Region was awarded platinum status – the highest level of recognition – based on campaign best practices and excellence in employee and community engagement. York Region was one of only two municipalities in the GTA achieving the platinum level of recognition.

The announcement of the campaign’s placement on the Local Leader’s List follows a national award of excellence from IABC Canada for the 2017 employee fundraising campaign. The Silver Leaf Award was given to the Region for its exceptional communications approach to employee engagement.

With a 2018 donation of $780,575, the York Region and York Regional Police 2018 campaign was the top fundraising campaign in York Region for United Way and one of the top two public-sector campaigns in the Greater Toronto Area. It focused on an employee donation program, a number of employee-driven fundraising events and initiatives, and spring and holiday markets featuring local vendors and business-owners.

Over the past 25 years, York Region and York Regional Police have raised close to $6 million for United Way – the largest non-governmental funder of social services in the Region.

Operating in more than 100 communities in Canada, each United Way raises support locally, directly responding to local needs. York Region and York Regional Police work closely with United Way agencies daily to help support critical social services throughout the Region. As the demand for these services continues to grow, each dollar raised can lead to life-changing results.
