Thousands will benefit from your support
When you give to Brant United Way, your donation is invested locally to address identified priority areas. Approximately 45,000 citizens or 1 in 3 will be helped by our 18 Member Agencies who deliver quality services and programs for citizens in our community. For many of these Agencies, the support from United Way is integral to their operation. Without it, many wouldn't be able to operate.
