In the last ten years over 249 community charities have been supported by United Way.  This collective impact has mobilised over 9421 volunteers within the community. 

United Way New Zealand are currently inviting submissions for fund management opportunities, corporate/business sponsorship, payroll giving and donations to support charities making a social difference in Otago. 

United Way would like to thank The Tindall Foundation, Mercy Hospital and the Otago Polytechnic Charity House project for contributing to the United Way Community Funding in Otago. This collective fund makes a real difference to the Otago Charities, doing necessary community work in our region.
