Host your own fun event to support United Way

Did you know that you can design and build your own fundraising event to support United Way Southern Vancouver Island?

Creating your own fundraising event is easy. We’ve got a few tips to get you going:

  • Start with a hobby or something you feel passionate about
  • Do some research to identify a particular need in your community
  • Pick a time and a place that works for you (and event attendees!)

Any funds collected beyond your break-even amount will go towards United Way’s work tackling local issues—helping seniors, families, and people with mental health and addiction challenges—in communities throughout Southern Vancouver Island.

Whatever you decide, when you gather people for a fundraising event, your community always benefits! For more info, click here .
