Help Transform Lives with a Major Gift to United Way
When you make a donation to United Way, you are making an investment in your community and giving your family, friends, and neighbours a hand up when they need it most. Every dollar of your donation is invested right here in your community to transform local lives and create lasting social change. It’s also rigorously measured for its effectiveness and efficiency, ensuring that together we are driving the most meaningful results and the biggest possible impact.
At United Way all donors are vitally important. Donors with the ability and interest to give at the $25,000 level are considered members of our Philanthropist Circle.. Major donors are influential members of the local community and serve as inspirational leaders, playing a vital role in helping make a difference in the lives of individuals and families in Southern Vancouver Island. They can rely on United Way to ensure their gift is used in the community where it will have significant impact. Or, they can help choose how their gift is used, through the establishment of a named, donor-advised fund.
Major gifts can be cash donations, but gifts of securities also make great sense at this level, considering the special tax benefit these provide for donors.
