Meet the volunteer leaders who make it all happen

Over 5000 Winnipeggers volunteer for United Way Winnipeg, lending their talents, knowledge and community connections to our board, councils and campaigns. We couldn’t do the work we do without their generosity and energy and the next generation is a critical part of advising us into the future. From working at the workplace to ensure their colleagues are aware of the importance of supporting the community, to helping with fundraising on our Campaign Cabinet, to collaborating with the agencies as Agency Liaison Volunteers, the next generation is integrated into every part of our core work.
