Leave a Legacy 


When you look back at your life, what are some of your fondest memories? For many of us, it revolves around growing up in a small Northern town. The treasured friends we made and the adventures we went on. We are truly blessed to live in a beautiful place filled with green space and genuine people.

When you think about the future and the community you live in, the difference you’ve made… do you wonder how you can leave the world a better place?

If so, a gift in your will to United Way Centraide North East Ontario/Nord-est de l’Ontario (UWNCEO) might be part of your legacy.

By leaving a legacy gift to UWCNEO, you can:

  • Support seniors by contributing to the Seniors Urgent Fund and ensure vulnerable older adults in our community continue to have the help they need now, and for future years to come.
  • Establish or contribute to children's programs to ensure our future leaders have access to equal opportunities to succeed in life.
  • Reduce food insecurity by providing vital funds to create or support sustainable food programs 
  • Create meaningful opportunities for the community to remain connected through a coordinated volunteer resource centre.
  • Provide shelter and resources for at-risk youth and adults facing homelessness.

Your charitable bequest will go directly to the programs you may have supported already in your lifetime. You can also choose to dedicate your gift to a particular area of the work you care so much about. Whatever your passion, we are here to help!

To discuss how you can leave a legacy and help create a stronger, more vibrant community for the future, please contact Mary Lou Hussak, Executive Director, at 705-560-3330 ext. 201 or email m.hussak@uwcneo.com
