About United Way of Winnipeg:

Founded in 1965, United Way of Winnipeg (UWWIN) raises funds to support local charities and individuals in their efforts to make Winnipeg a better place to live in. UWWIN allocates grants to these local bodies based on its assessment of the community’s needs in areas of education, income and health. UWWIN works with Peg, a research agency, to understand the needs of the community. Peg tracks indicators and stories on the quality of life in Winnipeg to help people understand the changing trends in society.

In F2015, United Way of Winnipeg granted $16.7m to over 100 local charities. It also runs a few internal programs like Kids Care and Living on the Edge Poverty Simulation. These programs helped UWWIN connect with the community and understand its social needs and perceptions better. It funded over 90 community development and counselling programs, 27 money management and employment skills building sessions, and 50 out of school programs.

Through its allocations, United Way of Winnipeg has helped out 90,000 people this year alone. It reports that through these arrangements 850 young people are no longer living on the streets and 870 individuals are employed. 96% of the seniors surveyed are now feeling less isolated than before.
