Improving Lives Locally
Since 1958, United Way Hastings & Prince Edward continues to work with our community, partners, volunteers, government and businesses to build on our strengths. We are committed to making every effort to focus on bringing about measurable, positive and permanent change throughout Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, building healthier, more inclusive communities.
We work with over 60 organizations to improve community life and we are committed to sharing our experiences and expertise to meet the needs of the individuals and families we serve. We want and require your help to continue to make long-lasting change and we look forward to continuing this journey with all of you!
Since its inception in 1958, United Way of Hastings & Prince Edward has raised more than $43 million to support local not-for-profit health and social service agencies.
In 2017, our community raised $1,864,000 which assisted us in providing funding support to upwards of 70 vital programs and initiatives in the local not-for-profit health & social service sector throughout Hastings and Prince Edward Counties.
Each and every day, local United Ways across Canada work in communities to change living conditions for the better. The issues we face may vary, but the values and purpose that drive us are the same: to strengthen our communities and improve quality of life for all Canadians.

United Way HPE Land Acknowledgement
We acknowledge and honour the fact that our service region is located on the territory of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, the Haudenosaunee people, and directly adjacent to the Kenhté:ke – the Tyendinaga Territory – which is part of the Mohawk Nation.
We are grateful for the opportunity to live and work here, we are thankful for the generations of people who have taken care of this land – for thousands of years. We also recognize the contributions of Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous peoples who have and continue to live in these communities.
United Way HPE is committed to acknowledging and appreciating the Indigenous Peoples’ historic connection to this land and to raise awareness of our Indigenous partners and communities. It is important to atone and rebuild. This acknowledgement is one small part of our journey – moving forward we are dedicated to listening to, learning from, and collaborating with indigenous communities and partners. We are committed to weaving this learning into our policies and practices on an ongoing basis.
