Funding Opportunities

None of the work we do would be possible without our valued partners who provide essential social services and collaborate with us to change lives and create lasting change in our Island communities.

 Each year, we open up our funding process to eligible charitable PEI organizations whose work and mission align with the key focus area of our Community Investment Program: children, youth and their families who are living in, or at risk of living in, poverty.

Our vision is that “all Island children and youth have hope for a bright future”. Our young people are the future of our Island communities, and we want them to grow into happy, healthy, independent and contributing adults. To do that, they need a level playing field. 

The United Way of Prince Edward Island is pleased to announce that we are currently seeking applications for two separate funding streams related to our Community Investment Grant Program:
