United Way Winnipeg is volunteer-led

We mobilize thousands of volunteers a year through innovative volunteer opportunities, events and campaigns. We rely on the time & talents of volunteers for everything from fundraising to helping decide where to invest donations. We couldn’t do what we do without these kind of Winnipeg heroes. We believe that through volunteerism we can create meaning and lasting change in our community—and in people’s lives.
