How to donate

We’re launching our annual United Way Greater Toronto campaign on a new donation platform, @work.

This platform includes features like impact funds—allowing you to direct your gift to United Way focus areas like homelessness or mental health.  

To give, click the button below to register with your Toronto Metropolitan University email address to create your personalized donation portal.

Thank you for your continued support!
