UWY I Give: Ways to donate

United Way Yukon puts your donations to work where they get the greatest results.  Together we are creating lasting change in communities across the Yukon.

Every year, our Community Investment Committee selects programs which which directly benefit vulnerable Yukoners and their families.  If you would like to sponsor a specific project or put your money towards one of our 3 priority funding areas (poverty to possibility, all that kids can be, healthy people strong communities) then we would love to talk to you.
