United Way has a long history of working collaboratively to make a difference in the communities where we live, work, and play.

In search of creative ways to support our region through the pandemic, Carleton University organized a polar bear dip, held a virtual auction, and promoted community impact through digital communications.

Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co.

Since 2015, we’ve welcomed hundreds of cyclists and wave them off as they start their 100+ kilometer journey to the Beau’s Oktoberfest fairgrounds in Vankleek Hill, all in support of homeless and vulnerable youth.

D-Squared

D-Squared and United Way are partners in bringing free, recreational basketball to kids across Ottawa. The program gives kids a safe space while providing a community of support.
