In Northumberland, 7% of families and 9% of children fall below the poverty line.  Every dollar invested in United Way is spread countywide. When you donate, you help strengthen your community and create a better place for everyone to live.


Your donation is put to use where it is needed most. Northumberland United Way supports community partners, provides grants, and invests in local programs and services. Together, these address the growing needs for social services to provide sustainable solutions.


Improving lives

When you donate, you touch the lives of 1 in 4 residents. One example is United Way’s Back Pack for Kids program. Since 2005, over 13,000 students have received back packs filled with school supplies from kindergarten to grade 12 to kick-start a successful year of learning.


Join our movement. Together we can change the course of 24,000 lives in Northumberland.
