Funded Programs

Making a gift to United Way is the most effective way to help our whole community. United Way Cape Breton provides funding to programs delivered by registered charitable organizations that address social service issues in Cape Breton.  We currently provide funding for 37 Programs. The process of allocating dollars to community programs is a challenging task – every year, funding requests exceed the amount of money available for distribution. This challenge falls to the Community Investment Committee.  The volunteer-driven allocation process ensures that every dollar is distributed to where it will do the most good.  Last year, people from all walks of life... the young, the elderly the homeless, those without hope... were given a "hand up" by our funded programs.  They were listened to, counselled, received moral support and much more because of your generosity.
 


Please note: our Community Investment (funded programs) application process is not yet complete. Once we have completed this process, we will provide an updated list of current funded programs. 

United Way Cape Breton funds local programs that move people from poverty to possibility, enable kids to be all that they can be, and create strong communities.
