Through your generosity, United Way helps one in three people in Northern BC get the help they need.

We fund more than 100 agencies in the region, establish partnerships to address widespread needs, mobilize volunteers and more.

A gift to United Way of Northern BC remains the most effective and efficient way to help the entire community. When you make a donation, your dollars stay in our region to help with needs as varied as the people with those needs. Your generosity helps make our region a better place for all of us. Thank you.

United Way provides you with several options when making your gift. You can donate by credit card, cheque, or pre-authorized debit. In fact, why not donate right now! The sooner we receive your gift, the sooner it can be invested into local programs and initiatives that help change community conditions for the better.

Below is some sample wording for an obituary: In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to United Way. Checks should be payable to United Way of Northern BC and mailed to United Way of Northern BC; 1600–3rd Avenue Prince George, BC V2L 3G6. Please include a note stating your gift is in memory of [name].

Donating stock can be an effective and efficient method of supporting the United Way. Stock donations may enable you to increase your gift to United Way while realizing additional tax benefits for you. Check with your broker or tax advisor to determine if a stock donation makes sense for you.

When donating stock, most people simply transfer the stock directly to United Way as described below rather than selling it. This allows you to claim a charitable contribution in the amount of the average of the high and low stock price on the day of the transfer to United Way. United Way is responsible for any fees related to the sale of the stock. Please download the Gift of Securities form and feel free to call us at 250-561-1040 so we can walk you through the process.

For many people, philanthropic giving is a lifelong commitment that provides both personal satisfaction and financial benefits. In addition to planting a seed that will continue to grow for generations to come, there are financial incentives that may apply to planned giving.

A charitable planned gift is the result of careful and thoughtful structuring of one’s estate to benefit one or more charitable organizations. Such a gift is commonly asset-based rather than from current income and often involves a planning process utilizing the services of legal and financial professionals (i.e., estate and tax-planning attorneys, accountants and investment advisors). A planned gift can be given in many ways, including cash, charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement plans, bequests, appreciated property, charitable gift annuities and donor advised funds.

Please call us at 250-561-1040 so we can help guide you through the process.
