Where your donation goes:
Have you ever wondered where your United Way donation goes? Every dollar donated and every dollar spent is accounted for in our independently audited financial statements contained in our annual report, which we share on our website. Our fundraising costs represent 13% of the total funds raised and administrative overhead is only 7%. This means that 80 cents of every dollar raised is returned to the community. By comparison, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) considers 35% to be an acceptable standard. We are proud to provide funding to over 23 programs and services supporting our Peterborough & County community. Do you have any questions? Ask away!Donate Today!
