About us

Powell River & District United Way is a registered charity whose objective is to "Improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilising collective action" We call this our community impact mission.

What we believe in

Children and families in Powell River are struggling. *Almost 1 in 3 kids live in poverty, 35% of children 0-6 are considered 'vulnerable' and 31% of kids ages 6-12 are considered 'low' in well-being. We are hoping to see some of these statistics change. We are prioritising our designated local funds on programs that fit within the pillar "all that kids can be". We believe that everyone can make a difference and invite you to give, in any way you can!
