United Way Leeds & Grenville announces campaign total for 2023 

Brockville, ON – Last year presented significant challenges for United Way Leeds & Grenville, but the organization still managed to come very close to its fundraising goal. 

The books have closed on the 2023 campaign, and the agency announced today that it raised $883,679.04, or 94.51 per cent of its $935,000 fundraising goal. 

“We were in the midst of a recruitment process for a new executive director during the heart of the campaign,” Board Chair Ian McFall explained. “I can’t say enough about the hard work of our dedicated employees, which allowed us to come so close to what we knew was an ambitious campaign goal. I’d also like to thank our donors for their generosity during a tough time. They always step up when the community needs them.” 

Hailie Jack, Executive Director of UWLG, said, “I am very proud of our team. They worked tirelessly over 2023 under difficult circumstances. Our team is ready and excited to hit the ground running in 2024, to engage with our community, donors, and partners. We will forge new relationships and foster existing partnerships. Our applications for grants in 2024 are coming to a close on Feb. 16th, and we already have a 35 per cent increase in applications over last year. The need is greater than ever.” 

United Way Leeds & Grenville is currently recruiting members for its campaign cabinet for the 2024 fundraising campaign. It is an opportunity for philanthropic individuals to help raise funds to support our partner agencies that provide vital services to those in need. If you would like to be part of our campaign cabinet or would like to discuss opportunities to donate or help in any capacity, please call Hailie at 613-342-8889, or email ed@uwlg.org
