The campaign goal of increased participation – which translates directly to an increase in dollars raised – looks to members of the community to make a pledge online (or with a paper pledge form if preferred). Pledges can be paid all at once or throughout the year using the payroll deduction feature. A gift using payroll deduction is additionally efficient with the charitable receipt being included on the donor’s T4 slip.

Come out in support of York Cares 2012 and help to spread the word. By helping to support the United Way, you are helping to build a city where every person is able to reach their full potential; a city where every neighbourhood is thriving; a city that is healthy today; a city poised for a bright future.

Visit the United Way Toronto website for more information on the city’s overall campaign and its goal of raising $116 million.
