To Make a Donation

The United Way in Durham Region supports more than 25 local charities. Each dollar raised stays in the community and a single campaign supporting such a broad diversity of need provides for scale and efficiencies which drives donor value.

At the core of the United Way mission is the notion that by helping those least advantaged a stronger and more resilient community is created which is to the benefit of everyone.
