"Together… Strengthening the Community for All"
"Through collaboration, build upon our community’s resources
and strengthen our capacity to improve the quality of life for all.”
What is United Way Kitchener Waterloo & Area all about?
In a word, COMMITMENT.
Commitment to our community, our stakeholders and our volunteers.
Commitment to the many partnerships, programs and initiatives (by focus area: All that kids can be, Healthy people strong communities, From poverty to possibility) we work with each year as we strive to bring about positive change – long term, sustainable change.
So who are we, exactly?
Sure, we’re the largest funder of social service programs outside of government. Our annual workplace campaigns - together with the other fundraising efforts - are an integral component of our success.
But our commitment extends beyond monetary investment. We also mobilize staff, volunteers and other resources to change community conditions for the better.
We are a catalyst for social change, targeting the source of local challenges to fix problems at the root. Through a proactive business model, we’re working strategically to address our community’s needs on a long term basis.
