The #UnitedTourNBC 2018 brought to you by Pembina Pipeline Corporation, Mr Mikes and BC Corrections, is the start of a philanthropic revolution that brings communities together for the long-term benefit of all community members. Our initiative will be traveling to 20 communities in Northern BC to cultivate compassion, engage residents to overcome social issues and foster a culture of philanthropic giving in our region.

United Way of Northern BC has always had a regional reach when it comes to impacting communities. Together with our #UnitedTourNBC 2018 partners we will be traveling the region from April to June 2018.

The #UnitedTourNBC 2018 will be on the ground in 20 communities, host events to raise funds that will stay locally, use social media to tell the local stories of our region and bring together change makers.

 

UWNBC is an umbrella organization that raises money and invests in over 500 local community programs; more than 120 organizations; 86 aboriginal communities and 5 regional districts across the entire region: from Haida Gwaii to the Alberta border; Quesnel to the Yukon border. We closely analyze the landscape of each community, work with local organizations to determine what the greatest needs are for the community as a whole.

What does this mean for your community in the Northern region? It means funds raised in your community,stays in your community. Check out our annual impact sheet to see local organizations we support.

The entities we fund work diligently every day to lift people out of poverty; support kids’ development through their crucial early years; and work toward social inclusion of all community members.
