Description & Services

Information Mission 
"To lead, inspire and mobilize donors and volunteers to improve the quality of people's lives in our communities." 
The United Way of Lunenburg County exists to support essential programs and organizations in Lunenburg County. We raise funds by soliciting donations in workplaces from individuals and their corporate employers. The funds are allocated to community programs in response to applications from registered charities on an annual basis. We also offer donor choice where donations can be directed to specific registered charities. 
The United Way is governed by a local Board of volunteers including youth members. The annual process of awarding funds to programs is under the supervision of a Citizens Allocation Committee. The United Way benefits from the efforts of countless volunteers as well as donations in kind from many businesses, with the result that our cost of operating is extremely low, ensuring donations create the maximum positive results.
