The New United Way Halton & Hamilton is Stronger Together
Our philosophy has always been in our name – UNITED. At United Way, we work best when we work together. We accomplish most when we work with employers and donors, with volunteers and partners, and with sponsors and community agencies. We are at our best when we join forces.
Now, four United Ways have become one. We have UNITED.
In April, the United Ways of Burlington/Hamilton, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville amalgamated into a single new organization: United Way Halton & Hamilton. Our new United Way serves more than 1,000,000 people in communities from Stoney Creek to Acton and while our mission is unchanged, what is different is the organization that works to deliver on that mission.
As we evolve, we are maintaining our focus on the individual communities that make up our newly expanded “home town,” so our donors will still be able to give locally and to know that their contributions will stay close to home. You will always be able to support your closest neighbours. That is the cornerstone of our work. The money you give in Oakville will support agencies and programs in Oakville. That’s our promise to you.
United Way Halton & Hamilton offers a stronger team of dedicated professionals, more efficient administrative processes and a scope that allows us to tackle the many social issues that cross municipal boundaries. This amalgamation will give our new United Way the tools to have an even greater community impact as we pursue the mission that has been so powerful for so long: To improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
This is an exciting time for your United Way. The changes we are undertaking today will enhance our community impact for years and decades to come. Please take some time to get to know your new United Way. The staff and volunteers here at United Way Halton & Hamilton look forward to working with you to continue improving lives locally.
Together, we are stronger!
