UWGV Community Investment
United Way Greater Victoria (UWGV’s) mission is to improve lives and build a strong and inclusive community. Since 1937, we have invested over $149 million to support a strong network of programs and services in our community that work together to meet the diverse needs of Victoria residents. Collaboration and inclusion are at the heart of what we do, and our funded community partners reach out a helping hand to those who need it the most while spreading a net of support to people of all backgrounds and situations.
In 2016, United Way funding helped over 111,282 individuals, families, youth and children access 109 programs through 72 funded agencies that set them on the road to achieving their full potential. These numbers would be impossible without the generous support from donors – both individuals and workplaces – throughout the Capital Regional District (CRD). United Way supporters make change a reality.
UWGV follows the national community investment framework set by United Way Centraide Canada for supporting vulnerable populations in three priority areas: All That Kids Can Be, From Poverty to Possibility and Strong Communities.
