United Way Central Plains works to create opportunities for everyone by engaging people from all walks of life and inspiring action to help build a better community.

It is based on the simple belief that we are stronger together and have a bigger impact than we ever could alone.

Through an effective annual fundraising campaign, United Way Central Plains maximizes available financial resources to enable our funded nonprofit organizations to improve our community’s quality of life. Through the use of volunteers from the Board of Directors and community members United Way Central Plains distributes funds to meet current and ever changing human care needs within our community.

Big Brothers Big Sisters
Canadian Mental Health Association – Central Region
Child and Family Services Foundation’s Chance 2 Camp Program
Compassionate Friends
Portage Family Abuse Prevention Centre
