Thirty-five Years of Support, Caring and Sharing
We have come a long way from the first, grass roots campaign, which raised $37,000. After all these years our goal remains the same, To help Milton Residents. All funds raised in Milton stays in Milton to fund local programs. Each year our services reach out to more than 25,000 Milton families, children, youth, seniors and those in need.
Last year, we raised over $912,00 but the need continues to grow as the community grows.
United Way Milton, as it has since the beginning, is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are all dedicated to ensuring its efficient operation. Another volunteer committee assesses each agency application and determines the annual allocations of funds. Teams of volunteers run fundraising events and the annual campaign. All are assisted by competent staff.
Read on below to see real-life stores of individuals in need, whose lives have been changed by the support of the community through United Way Milton.
