About Our Charity

United Way of York Region currently funds close to 100 programs and services delivered through 41 community agencies. Since its founding in 1976, United Way of York Region has a trusted 35 year history of efficient, responsible and accountable stewardship of donor support. United Way York Region serves nine municipalities: Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Whitchurch-Stouffville. In addition to its traditional role of supporting agencies to meet urgent needs, United Way is working to tackle the root causes of social issues. To help strengthen York Region’s quality of life, United Way is uniting people and resources on three priorities: helping kids be all they can be, moving people from poverty to possibility and building healthy people and strong neighbourhoods.
