For over 25 years, KPU has supported the efforts of United Way of the Lower Mainland by engaging in an employee campaign. Through such, we encourage staff and faculty to consider our local and broader communities and to participate in improving the lives of our neighbours. We can do this by supporting United Way as it delves into the issues communities face, and participate with a variety of community partners who are working directly or indirectly with those in need.
United Way has been helping people in this way for more than 80 years. Currently working with over 200 community partners, the United Way funds 364 programs each year to create better futures for children, families and seniors.
United Way works towards and leads social change by collaborating through partnerships, either funding or conducting research to better understand community needs and plans for the future. A non-profit organization, United Way helps people understand the issues and endeavours to influence public attitudes, systems and policies. By being well-informed and connected with communities United Way makes investments in the community that garner the greatest impact.
To learn more how UWLM supported our local communities in 2022 please see the https://uwbc.ca/ which provides a snapshot of their achievements.
United Way's vision is a better community for all, with every person who lives in the Lower Mainland having access to the same opportunities allowing them to build a better life. For more information visit the United Way of the Lower Mainland website.
