THANK YOU. Your donations change lives.

Don't forget to share your contact information with us so that we can let you know how your donation makes a difference in your community. (Please note: If you check "Anonymous" when you donate through CanadaHelps, we will not receive your contact information and we will not be able to let you know all the incredible work your donation is doing in your community.)

Your donation stays local!

This year, United Way's Community Fund grants are helping 16,500 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. 


TrishRead 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.
