Together, we are possibility


Our Vision

A healthy, caring, inclusive community.

Our Mission

To strengthen our community’s capacity to address social issues.

By giving to United Way of the Lower Mainland, you are investing in your own community – where you live, work, learn and play.

United Way has been helping people in the Lower Mainland for more than 80 years. Working with over 150 community partners, we fund over 300 programs each year to create a better future for children, families and seniors.

How United Way works and leads social change:
  • Collaborate: We multiply our impact through partnerships.
  • Research: We fund and conduct research to understand community needs and plan for the future.
  • Invest: We make smart community investments to achieve results.
  • Advocate: We help people understand the issues and influence public attitudes, systems and policies.


None of the work we do would be possible without the generosity of our donors. We all share in the responsibility to create neighbourhoods that we are proud to call home.
