United Way Brandon & District

We are Community

At United Way of Brandon & District, our vision is to build community, change lives, and work together to make a difference. This vision is not just a tagline but a mandate within which we operate — it is a demonstration of our commitment to helping those in need within our community.

When we all work together we can inspire change. We have witnessed the true impact that your dollars have had in our community. We know that individuals can rise from difficult situations when given the chance. Thanks to the support of local businesses, members of the community, the government sectors, and our Partner Agencies these chances are provided every year.

help us protect everyone from the harsh Winter weather

We ensure that every child has warm clothing for those chilling Manitoba winters where cars don't start, frostbite comes quick, and safety is a must.

Everyday across Brandon, United Way volunteers make our community a better place to live.

More than 500+ volunteers choose to give back through United Way Brandon & District every year, through innovative volunteer opportunities, events and campaigns. Donating your time and talents can create a lasting change in our community – and in people’s lives.
