Thousands will benefit from your support

When you give to Brant United Way, your donation is invested locally to address identified priority areas. Approximately 45,000 citizens or 1 in 3 will be helped by our 18 Member Agencies who deliver quality services and programs for citizens in our community. For many of these Agencies, the support from United Way is integral to their operation. Without it, many wouldn't be able to operate.

Showing our community we care

On Friday, June 9th 2017 100 local volunteers rolled up their sleeves and helped not-for-profit agencies in Brantford and Paris. Brant United Way matched projects at not-for-profit agencies with volunteer groups from local workplaces. With many agencies operating on small budgets they rely on volunteers to help them take care of projects like general maintenance, landscaping, and painting. Day of Caring is an opportunity to bring our community together and create positive change.

We are grateful to Brant Mutual Insurance for their generous sponsorship for Day of Caring and continued support. Thank you to all agencies who submitted projects and all of the volunteers who made a difference this year!
