Every donation makes a difference. Together we can help others like Dawn build a path out of poverty for her and her family!
“In 2011 I was homeless living on the streets of Fredericton battling addiction. I grew up in poverty, left school in Gr. 8, and had no family support. I beat my addiction and decided I wanted a better life. I started working with the Saint John Learning Exchange building my skills and confidence. It has been a long journey! With the compassion and support of staff, I am working on my last course and am working two part-time jobs. My self-worth has grown. I am planning to go to college, get a career, and buy a house. As a family living in poverty 4 generations deep. I am teaching my kids the value of education and hard work. The cycle of poverty stops here!”

Gift of Securities – The Benefits Are Clear
If you sell a security, you pay tax on 50% of the capital gain. However, if you donate a gift of securities to United Way the taxable capital gain is completely eliminated AND you receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the security in the amount of the closing trading price on the day United Way receives the security. This multiplies the impact of the tax benefit of your charitable giving.
To donate securities, please fill out the following form and submit to United Way by email.
