Your United Way
Committed, caring, informed, relevant, and local.
- For more than 70 years, United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin has worked to monitor and meet the pressing social needs of our community. Directed by a volunteer board, managed by committed staff and supported by thousands of donors, the United Way works with partners in all sectors to identify needs and raise funds to support programs in response to those needs.
Thanks to the generosity of thousands of donors and the hard work of our funded agencies, we have improved the lives of children, youth, adults, families and seniors living in Guelph, Wellington County, and Dufferin County.
United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin strives to meet existing and emerging social needs in order to improve lives and build community.
Raising funds. Investing in local programs.
Campaign: United Way raises funds for local agencies and programs through the single largest annual community fundraising campaign in Guelph and Wellington and Dufferin counties. In 2013, we raised over $3.4 million. This was achieved through the dedication of hundreds of volunteers within the community.
- Community Impact: United Way staff work closely with local community groups to achieve meaningful, long-term improvements to quality of life in the communities of Guelph, and Wellington and Dufferin Counties.
