Celebrating 80 years in
Waterloo region

2021 marks the 80th year United Way has been supporting those who need it most in Waterloo Region. To celebrate, United Way WRC kicked off our annual fundraising campaign with our 80 for 80th virtual auction. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the opportunity to bid on some fabulous items while helping your local community. Together we can renew, recover and rebuild a stronger Waterloo Region.

80 years of generosity, kindness, and supporting community.


Kick-offs mean coming together. Whether it’s marching together through our cities, dressing up in costume, or volunteering across the community, United Way Kick-off events have always brought people together to collectively pledge to make our community stronger.

Looking back on 80 years

Your commitment means everything.

Thank you.

That's a wrap! Our Virtual auction is now closed.

We are so grateful that you have continued to place your trust in us and support our work for the last 80 years. Thank you to everyone who participated and generously gave or bid to support our auction!

This auction was only made possible thanks to the generous donations of auction items from people and businesses in Waterloo Region, all funds raised will go to supporting charities, non-profits and people right here in our community.
