Bring United Way Into Your Workplace

Each year, more than 680 corporate partners in Halton and Hamilton run their own United Way employee giving campaigns. These campaigns inspire donors to support our community’s most vulnerable people, and raise much-needed funds that benefit kids, at-risk youth, seniors and families.


Workplace campaigns also bring employee teams closer together, providing a fun and impactful way to get together.
