We want to thank everyone who contributed time, energy, donated goods for auctions and donated funds through United Way Yukon in 2021.
Thank you all for investing in your community, your neighbours, your co-workers and for helping Yukoners of all ages! Donations allow us to say “yes” more often as we allocate funds to projects in your community.
Despite all the ups and downs of the past year, and the challenges that many people faced, Yukoners have shown that they care about our community and want to help where they can. Whether you volunteered at our annual Breakfast, participated in a 50/50 raffle, bid on an auction item, took part in an office fundraiser or donated money to us in the past year, you helped make a difference.
The donations we received in 2021 will go towards are annual funding allocation in February 2022 to help Yukon non-profits deliver essential programs and projects that help make our community stronger and healthier.
Here is a list recognizing contributions $300 and above, as well as a look back at the events of the year.
