Our Work

The United Way of PEI works to answer the needs of communities across the province by performing a yearly needs assessment, fundraising and supporting priority programs. 

Any registered charitable organization providing services to the community that meet the established UWPEI management and performance criteria is eligible for support from the United Way of PEI.  We work to identify and support priority needs based on our three focus areas:

  • From Poverty to Possibility
  • All that kids can be
  • Healthy People, Strong Communities

"The Ready, Set, Learn! program; it aims to maintain literacy levels over the summer so that kids aren't subject to what we call the "summer slide", the program that we run helps upwards of 800 kids every summer and that's directly because of funders like you."

- Gina, PEI Literacy Alliance


Behind every changed life is someone like you who made it happen. All donations to the United Way of PEI stay on PEI to help Islanders.
