As a university situated in Toronto’s downtown core, Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) is deeply engaged with and connected to our surrounding communities and neighbourhoods.  

The pandemic has plunged our community into crisis. People and families who were already struggling have been pushed further into hardship. Demand for social services is skyrocketing. It is more critical than ever to support our local community and help them recover. 

Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) is a long-standing supporter of United Way Greater Toronto. Since 2015 we have raised over $1-million for local United Way agencies, external link through our annual giving campaign. Your gift to United Way Greater Toronto funds a GTA-wide network of community agencies that work locally to provide everything from food and mental health counselling to shelter and vital outreach services. 

Please consider supporting our United Way campaign this year so that those who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 receive the help they need.

"How can we do more? We can multiply our own impact by continuing to support United Way agencies that, like us, know how important it is to lift up our friends, neighbors and family during times of instability and crisis."
