Together, We are Possibility: Build your Team and our Community.

Today’s workplace is an ever-changing item. Employees can work in one community, live in another, all the while taking part in activities in even more places.

But we all know building a cohesive team around a singular cause is important for any organization, and especially a business that draws support from every part of Waterloo region.

Its every bit as vital for that business to also show its region wide support.

That is one of the great strengths of United Way. We work in every part of the region to help people find opportunities to reach their potential. Sometimes it involves helping people gain access to food and shelter, often the first point of contact for someone needing the network of support provided by United Way.  But this support can also look like counseling for couples struggling with financial or relationship problems, or children needing an after school program to help them overcome the effects of bullying, and build their self-esteem.

Those issues know no borders, and that’s why United Way exists to ensure those services are available to all, no matter where they work, live, or play.

More than 250 businesses run United Way workplace campaigns in our region. Many have been with us for decades. They understand the value a United Way campaign has, not only in helping people, but also in providing a common cause for employees.

A United Way campaign is also about more than just donations. We offer a variety of hands on, interactive activities, which really bring the impact of your generosity home. 

And running a workplace campaign is trouble free, and efficient for any business.  One of our staff will be happy to walk you through the process, and will be there to support you at every step. “More hands make for lighter work” or so the saying goes. For all of us, working together has real impact on people who need just a little help to find firmer ground, and build a stronger life.

Your support can make that a possibility, and give your workplace team a real sense of helping in our community.  We would love to have you as part of our team. For more information visit  (link to workplace giving)  or contact  our team today!
