How to Apply for United Way Funding

United Way Centraide North East Ontario/ Nord-est de l'Ontario carries out two primary functions: Revenue Generation and Community Investment.

 

United Way's Revenue Generation is the development, planning, and implementation of annual fundraising, as well as other innovative partnerships which result in non-receiptable funding. It supports a variety of social service programs in North East Ontario.

United Way's Community Investment has two primary functions: Identifying social/health related needs and distributing funds to meet these needs. Social needs of the community are identified through the collection and compilation of information related to issues, trends, and opportunities in the social service sector. Social needs planning also includes involvement in community planning activities through participation in local planning groups, community consultations and facilitation of community planning processes.
