Your contribution to United Way will create lasting change in people’s lives and in our community.
Giving can be as simple as giving up your daily coffee for a month (or a week) and handing over your extra change, challenging your colleagues to sign up for StariClimb or going big and hosting a creative event, contest or fun fundraising challenge for your friends or co-workers. Whatever you do giving to United Way Elgin Middlesex is simple, fun and feels good.
But why give?
- Because change starts with you
- We all want our community to be the best it can be and when you give your donation stays in London and Middlesex County
- Poverty , mental health and beginnings and transitions are issues our community cares about and United Way is working with community partners to create effective, lasting solutions
- United Way Elgin Middlesex guarantees cost-efficiency because each donation is invested in initiatives that are strategic and collaborative
Because you don’t have to be a millionaire to give.
At this point in our lives, let’s face it, not all of us are making millions of dollars a year. But did you know that to make positive lasting change in our community a million dollar salary isn’t necessary?
$30 (less than a month’s worth of coffee) provides one hour of translation services for an immigrant family to help them communicate with a health care worker, teacher or potential employer.
$75 (the cost of a new shirt) can send one at risk child to a week-long summer fun club focusing literacy building, physical activity and social competency skills.
$168 (a night out on the town), can supply education and food supplies for one family for one year.
