About United Way East Ontario’s November 2019 Matching Gift Opportunity

Gifts made in response to United Way East Ontario’s holiday matching gift mailing, or other special offers online, through United Way programs like Women United or GenNext, or by telephone, can qualify for a match opportunity subject to the conditions laid out below.

Donations made through the mail, United Way East Ontario’s website, or telephone calls, during the time period of November 18 to December 31, 2019, are eligible to be matched.

This match is made possible through a gift commitment received by United Way East Ontario from Scotiabank. During this campaign the total in matching funds available is $50,000. United Way East Ontario assumes sole responsibility for implementing the match. United Way East Ontario reserves the right to exclude any donations from this matching gift process at any time, for any reason. Scotiabank, or any other partners that may join this matching gift offer, assume no obligation to match any gift from any United Way East Ontario supporter.

Donation matches are implemented by United Way East Ontario staff, based on funds donated. United Way East Ontario will take funds provided by Scotiabank and match them with the corresponding funds individual donors provide. The combined amount will support the work undertaken by United Way East Ontario through our community fund or affinity program initiatives.  Designated organizations to other Canadian charities are not eligible to be matched. Donors will only receive a tax receipt for the amount they contribute. 

United Way East Ontario will match donations received from individuals with the appropriate amounts from funds provided by the match partner on Tuesday, January 14th 2020. To be eligible, donations must be received through the channels listed above by 11:59pm EST on December 31st 2019.

If the total dollars contributed to this matching gift campaign during 2019 falls short of the campaign target, United Way East Ontario will match as many of the available gifts as possible, and reserve the remainder of the funding for matching gift campaigns in subsequent years, or apply them to other charitable programs or goals. During such campaigns, United Way East Ontario will post new terms under which the match will be implemented. If the total dollars raised from matching gift campaigns during 2019 exceeds the total available, United Way East Ontario will choose gifts to be matched through a random process on January 14th 2020, until the total available match amount is exhausted. This process will be implemented at United Way East Ontario headquarters at the following address: United Way East Ontario 363 Coventry Road, Ottawa ON
