change lives.

Our Community Work

‘Such an incredible event’

The impact the United Way and its funded partners have on our region was on full display at Songs of the City on May 1st.

How we decide what to fund

At United Way, we are grateful to the individuals who serve on our Community Investment Advisory Committee.

Volunteers are making a difference throughout the community

None of our achievements would be possible without the enthusiasm and dedication of our volunteers.

Please join us for Songs of the City 

On May 1 at the beautiful Imperial Theatre in Saint John, you are invited to join us for Songs of the City, a unique United Way event that brings together storytellers whose lives have been changed with support from a United Way-funded agency.

GenNext: Making an impact 

GenNext Saint John, Kings & Charlotte is not just growing the next generation of philanthropists – it's actively shaping them. 

Matchmaking eager volunteers to local non-profits a critical service

To Julie Atkinson, the call to the United Way made all the difference. The executive director of Sophia Recovery Centre had to move the organization out of two different office locations in Saint John into a new space in Quispamsis by the end of December.

Partnership provides needed school supplies for students

An important partnership between United Way and Staples has meant thousands of dollars of supplies have been donated to schools in our communities for students in need.

Empowering the non-profit sector: our fall workshops

Part of what we do at the United Way is help strengthen non-profit organizations across Saint John, Kings and Charlotte – knowing that a strong non-profit sector will help more people more effectively and will strengthen the fabric of the communities they serve.

Witnessing impact first hand…with donuts

On a hot summer day last month, Tamara McKee dropped by a park in Sussex to see the BGC Summer Slide program in action. Because she works for the bakery Mrs. Dunster’s, she toted along bags of donuts and cookies.
