About United Way Greater Toronto
United Way Greater Toronto is the largest investor in social services in the GTA, second only to government. We believe that every person in every community deserves the opportunities, access and connections they need to build a good life—regardless of their income, postal code, race or social identity. We sustain a vital social safety net that provides hundreds of thousands of people—your friends, neighbours and family—with much-needed support, year-round. Through our network of community agencies, and with your local love, we deliver services and supports to help tackle local poverty and related unignorable issues, including hunger, homelessness, social isolation and mental health.
Our supporters, caring people like you, ensure that we’re working in community every single day—both in times of stability and crisis. Your investment in United Way’s community-building work means that we can continue to prioritize the people, and neighbourhoods, across the GTA that are most impacted by systemic issues including poverty, income inequality, racism and homelessness. We put your dollars to work in community based on our decades of experience, partnerships, research and advocacy that ensures United Way’s local solutions are guided by equity, compassion and impact.
