Show your local love in a unique way

Did you know that you can build your own event in support of United Way?

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, #UNIGNORABLE issues—including poverty, homelessness and mental health—in communities throughout Southern Vancouver Island.

Whatever you decide, when you show your local love, your community always benefits! For our third party information package, click here.
