The United Way Halton & Hamilton is still $3 million short of their fundraising goal for the year.

The United Way Halton & Hamilton is about three-quarters of the way towards their annual fundraising goal, but is reaching out to the communities they serve to get over the top.

Covering Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills, the organization has confirmed $9.5M has been raised so far, $3M shy of the $12.5M goal.

“From the beginning of the campaign in September, it has been inspiring to witness the tremendous generosity of our community,” said Brad Park, the rresident and CEO of United Way Halton & Hamilton.

“I wish to thank each of you who have already supported the campaign. By setting a challenging goal, we aimed to motivate everyone to come together and make a lasting impact. While we are well on our way, it’s crucial that we continue to work together and push towards the finish line.”

There is still an opportunity to support this year’s Local Love Community Match, which is a program that sees 25 per cent added to every donation by a local resident. For every $4 donated by an individual, an additional $1 will be contributed by generous community members and organizations, amplifying the impact of their giving.

The United Way Halton & Hamilton 2023-2024 campaign will run until March 31, 2024.

“It’s not too late to be part of creating positive change and improving the lives of the most vulnerable individuals and families in the region.” said a spokesperson.
