The City’s annual United Way Employee Campaign raises funds for the United Way Greater Toronto, to fight poverty and provide help to those who need it most. This year’s campaign – “One City, One Team, One Campaign” – is strengthened through collaboration with agencies and corporations to benefit the community.
Every donation counts, no matter how small!
Donations to the Employee Campaign will need to be completed using a paper pledge form. Or, you can donate through One-Time or On-going Deductions, Credit Card, Cheque, Cash or Payroll Deduction. Please contact your Divisional Coordinator for more information about making a donation.
One-time donations can be made through the City’s @Work lite system
Donations to the Employee Campaign will need to be completed using a paper pledge form. As well, you can donate through One Time or On-going Deductions, Credit Card, Cheque, Cash or Payroll Deduction. Please contact your Divisional Coordinator for more information about making a donation.
If you made a donation through payroll deduction during the 2020 United Way Campaign, your payroll deduction (which took effect in January 2021) would be ongoing, until you decide to make a change. This amount should be reflected on your personalized donation page and appear on your pay stub.
For the 2021 campaign, you have the following options:
- If you do not change your donation details, your current ongoing donation will continue throughout the 2022 pay cycle.
- If you would like to change the amount or details of your donation, you can do so online. Your new instructions will take effect with the first pay of 2022.
- To be eligible for this year’s Incentive Draws, you need to make a payroll pledge of $4 or more (annual equivalent of $104 or more). A 2022 tax receipt will be issued for the total donation, less the $4 cost of this ticket.
Benefits of Donation Rollover
- It is convenient: you don’t have to fill out the paperwork every year if you don’t want to change your donation.
- You can plan your financials: with Donation Rollover, you will know exactly what you will be donating from one year to the next.
Please consider being a Leadership Donor for 2021. Leadership donations are critical to the success of the employee campaign, representing almost 30 per cent of all dollars raised over the last few years.
Minimum Leadership Donation: $1,200 per year or $46.16 per pay
