About Your United Way  

United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island (UWCNVI) creates opportunities for a better life for every person in your community by tackling pressing social issues.

Our Impact

United Way invests your donation in your community to achieve impact in three areas:

Our Mission

We improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.

Our Values

Together, we:

  • demonstrate trust, integrity, transparency, inclusivity and respect
  • energize and inspire volunteerism and volunteer leadership
  • endorse innovation, partnerships and collective action
  • provide non-partisan leadership
  • embrace diversity 

Where We Work

UWCNVI supports life-changing programs in each of our impact areas in four regions of Vancouver Island:

  • Cowichan 
  • Central Island (including Ladysmith, Gabriola, Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum Beach and Port Alberni)
  • Comox Valley
  • Campbell River

Your donation always stays local and is invested into services to help those in need - your family, your friends, your neighbours, your co-workers or someday maybe even you.
