Support Our Community through the United Way
Join the Trent team and support Peterborough and Durham
The United Way helps those in need and the agencies that provide necessary services and resources
The Trent community of caring, compassionate and connected. For more than 50 years, we've shown how much we care about our home communities by giving generously to the United Way campaign.
Last year alone, Trent's campaign enabled United Way supported programs to provide assistance to those in need more than 53,000 times! That looks like:
- 7,156 youth provided with workshops, programs and other activities
- 2,084 in-home supports for those with mobility issues
- 1,162 food cards to individuals and families
- 185 community education sessions
- 302 social learning and inclusion programs
- 386 financial counselling sessions
Our goal is to continue building on the extraordinary positive impact we already have in the community - and we can only do this if more of us commit to supporting the United Way. Will you join in?
How you can help:
Giving has never been easier with the new United Way portal, United Way @ Work, that has been customized for the Trent campaign.
Why give to the United Way?
The United Way campaign focuses on local issues and local solutions through funding partner agencies who address issues like homelessness, food insecurity, domestic violence, and mental health challenges. Your donation stays in either Peterborough or Durham, driving support, impact and change where we live, work and play. Social change is made in local communities through the United Way’s support for 20 partner agencies in both Peterborough and Durham.
For more than 50 years, Trent has supported the communities it serves, and Trent’s leadership is more important now than ever. The University has been Peterborough’s top workplace campaign for the past four years, and there is lots of room on the Trent team and in the circle of care.
Giving has never been easier with the new United Way portal, United Way @ Work, that has been customized for the Trent campaign. Give Now.
