Holiday Giving

December 16 – 31, 2020

This holiday season United Way wants to give the gift of hope to those who need it most in Waterloo Region.

Covid 19 has caused more than one problem and together we can provide more than one solution. Social isolation, mental health and basic needs are just a few challenges facing our community. Your generous gift will be matched and support a network of agencies who help where and when it is needed most. Our Community cannot recover without you.

Give a gift with double the impact!

If you make a donation between December 16 – December 31, your gift will be matched by a generous group of donors (up to $25,000). Thank you for your kindness, generosity and #LocalLove. Your support is truly making a difference this season.

A Treat For You!

As a special Holiday Giving treat, if you order curb-side pick up online, (not  delivery) at Borealis Grille & Bar at the Kitchener location (4336 King St E, Kitchener) you can donate to United Way and receive a $10 Gift Certificate for your next restaurant meal!

Give a gift in honour of a teacher!

Looking for that perfect gift for your child’s teacher? What better way to honour a teacher than by showing your love for our community! United Way gifts are simple and contactless by visiting our United Way shopping cart.

Simply fill out your gift amount and how you would like your funds designated, and select “I wish to give in honour of someone else”. Continue to follow the prompts to write in the teacher’s name and email address. A certificate will be emailed to the teacher within a week!
