About This Charity

Give today to change thousands of lives in your community! 

Your donation stays local and is invested in crucial services to help those in need – your friends, family, neighbours, co-workers or, someday, maybe even you.

In 2014/15, UWCNVI is helping 16,500 people by funding 48 life-changing programs in three regions of Vancouver Island: Central Island (from Ladysmith to Port Alberni), Comox Valley and the Campbell River area.

Your donation changes lives in three areas:

  • Help kids to grow up healthy and to be all that they can be 
  • Support healthy people and strong communities
  • Help people move from poverty to possibility

We would love to share real stories with you of the lives you've helped to change -- so please don't forget to share your contact information with us.
