About United Way of Northern British Columbia

Since 1947, United Way of Northern BC has been mobilizing everyday people and organizations to contribute to programs that support communities in the north.

You might know us for our wide-range of community initiatives that have reached hundreds of communities and thousands of people in Northern BC since we began, currently affecting 22 municipalities and 86 First Nations communities. Or, you may know us from our fundraising events, like the Commonwealth Golf Tournament in Prince George or the Fire Truck Pull in Fort St John. You might also know us from participating in an employee payroll donation campaign at your workplace. Or, maybe you’ve seen the United Road Tour bus come through the streets of your town. How ever you know us, you know that we are for Northern BC, standing with the people, at work in the communities, and extending the arm of support to those who are in need.


To improve lives by expanding our capacity to harness the caring power for people in Northern British Columbia.


United Way envisions a Northern BC where all individuals and families can achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

We’re listening to what people are saying. The demands of contemporary living and our desires for how we engage with our communities are evolving well beyond the traditional cause-based fundraisers and ad hoc volunteer opportunities. To adapt to the every-changing world and needs of the well-connected individual, we are on the edge of dramatic transformation in our organization. From inside out, we are actively changing, responding to what we’ve heard from both our donors and the communities we serve.

We are embarking upon a new journey to connect people in Northern BC to that which matters most to you, to empower you with opportunities to make a difference in your local community, the ability to be able to see the direct impact you are making. Funds raised in the community, stay in the community. We call it Local Love.

  • We are the most efficient fundraisers by building relationships with individuals and organizations in the communities we serve with minimal staff and maximum knowledge.

  • We are community collaborators so more of your dollars have a direct impact on local issues and the people that need it most.

  • We make it easy on donors by making one ask for funding rather than them receiving individual requests from the 125+ organizations we support.

  • We are an assembly of donors, advocates, volunteers and partners who fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community in Northern BC.

  • We are mobilizers of the caring power of the people around the entire Northern BC region!

  • We are the Titans of non-profits! Our history and strength give us the ability to provide stable, ongoing support.

  • We are the go-to place for social impact; a philanthropic marketplace that meets the needs of today s empowered individuals.


Together we are making impossible happen.
