I started giving to United Way almost 50 years ago and we’ve included it in our Wills. I know my donations to United Way stay in our community, and are carefully allocated and monitored.
I’ve always loved the quote: “to the world you are one person, but to one person you are the world”. United Way is named in my Will and on my life insurance policy. I know it will be here helping where it’s needed most, long after I’m gone.
Victoria is a marvelous place to live, but there is still a lot of need here. When you have been given so many opportunities by this community, it’s nice to give something back and United Way is an effective way of getting funds to the organizations we care about.
Let’s not forget that today’s seniors are yesterday’s teachers, nurses, doctors, soldiers and business leaders. Together with their parents, they built this wonderful country. The least we can do is help look after them in their later years.

United Way is far more than an efficient generator of social service monies. They assess services, distribute resources and engage thousands of volunteers.
United Way maximizes the impact of money entrusted to them by donors. As part of a national network of United Way organizations, who regularly share best practices, they are committed to a continuous improvement model of delivering services in our community.
I give to United Way because it’s a smart investment. My donation goes to support a web of services and if my own life takes an unexpected turn, I know the programs will be available to help me.
Many people in our community struggle to pay their rent, provide their kids with a healthy meal or are fighting addictions. This is where United Way steps in to give a helping hand, and the reason why I support them.
