Building on the legacy and leadership of our fundraising, we’re proud that the trust that we have cultivated with our donors has bolstered a shared appreciation of the other tools we use to create impact in our communities: research, advocacy, investing, and convening. At all times, but particularly in times of crisis, these tools work in concert to achieve the change we want to see.
Our role as a convener brought together the COVID-19 Community Response Table, which has enabled quick problem solving, prioritization of needs, collaboration and innovation to ensure local people are continuously supported through the unique challenges of COVID-19. United Way East Ontario continues to evaluate how the most vulnerable are coping, and how well we’ve been supporting our communities through the pandemic. We’re committed to being here for those who need us, knowing that challenges will persist for many months to come.
