Yukon Charitable Gaming Survey

The purpose of this survey is to determine how Yukon non-profits use charitable gaming revenue as part of their overall fundraising strategy.

Your responses to this survey will be used to provide recommendations to the Yukon Government Department of Community Services, which regulates and licenses charitable gaming. The aim is to improve the experience for Yukon non-profits so they can benefit from this fundraising opportunity.

There is no prize for participating in this charitable gaming survey, but you may be contacted for follow up questions to provide additional information. Responses will be kept confidential.

The survey has 10 questions and should take 5-10 minutes to complete.  To access the survey, click on the link below:

October is United Way Month: Our flag is flying!

Thank you to Yukon Premier Sandy Silver for joining us this morning as we raised the United Way flag in Whitehorse. We also thank the City of Whitehorse for displaying our flag this month at City Hall.

It’s always a proud moment for us to see our flag, the “helping hand,” flying high.

October is United Way Month, watch for more updates on fundraising happening this month!

With your support since September we have raised a total of $31,221 and are working on a campaign goal of $80,000 this year.

There is an amazing contribution we want to highlight today! The Yukon Energy Food Security Network has received a contribution of $15,000 from Sysco Canada.

The YE Food Network is focusing on food security across Yukon. The goal is the establishment of a collaborative food security network within each Yukon community.

This a partnership between United Way Yukon, the Whitehorse Food Bank and the Yukon Anti Poverty Coalition, energized with support and sponsorship from Yukon Energy.

In 2020 this agency published a comprehensive report on food security in Yukon. The next step is to build on what has been learned and mobilize volunteers in all communities to make healthy, affordable food more available.
