Executive salaries at United Way Centraide Canada and United Ways across Canada are established through a comparison of executive compensation at other charities, an assessment of roles and responsibilities, and a commitment to spending dollars wisely.
On average across the country, 85 cents of every dollar raised by United Way goes directly back to the community. This is well above industry standards, and competitive with the top non-profit organization across Canada. In turn, United Way is helping thousands of other non-profits keep their costs low too.
