Join the Trent team and support Peterborough and Durham
Make your donation now with United Way @ Work.
The United Way helps those in need and the agencies that provide necessary services and resources.
The Trent community is caring, compassionate and connected. For almost 60 years, we've shown how much we care about our home communities by giving generously to the United Way campaign. Each year, staff, faculty and retirees come together to raise funds for the many different service organizations and those they support in our community.
Did you know Trent's donation accounts for 10% of the entire campaign?
We have set two ambitious goals for this year's campaign. Together, we can reach them. With your help, we can raise $100,000 and inspire 15 new donors to join our campaign. Can we count on your support?
How to give:
Donate between September 18 and November 17, 2023, and join Team Trent to help increase our positive impact and build on our legacy of care. 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 that 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 and 275 programs in both Peterborough and Durham. You can find a detailed breakdown of how the United Way Peterborough & District uses all of our contributions in their Community Impact Report for 2022-2023.
