United Way Simcoe Muskoka

For a community to be great,
it has to be great for everyone.

All people are important. All people have the potential to need help and the potential to provide help. “Success” and “quality of life” mean different things to different people, but the ultimate goal of our donors, volunteers and partners is to build a region full of residents enjoying a good life and helping others achieve the same. A Simcoe Muskoka where everyone matters.


Welcome to the best #ReasonToGive: incredible results!
Your donation makes a difference, sometimes a life and death difference, for Simcoe Muskoka residents of all ages, locations and demographics. And they want to tell you about it…


In the summer of 2015, I lived only to feed my addictions. I’d lost my friends, family and business; and was homeless and broke. I attempted suicide…again.


In July 2014, I came to Canada as a refugee from the Ivory Coast with my six-year-old daughter, who has special needs; and 14-year-old niece.
