Your donation stays local!
This year, United Way's Community Fund grants are helping 20,300 people in the Central Island, Comox Valley and Campbell River.
Your donation will change a life in your community — maybe that of a friend, family member, neighbour or co-worker.
Read real stories about the lives you've helped to change.
And lives you've saved, literally.
Like Trish, who lost her job, had to declare bankruptcy, became depressed then suicidal because she couldn't bear to face another day. Thankfully, Trish managed to access free counselling funded by your donations that not only saved her life but transformed it.
United Way Central & Northern Vancouver Island serves the Central Island (Ladysmith, Gabriola, Nanaimo, Parksville-Qualicum and Port Alberni), the Comox Valley and Campbell River.
