Many businesses collect for United Way through corporate drives. If your company offers this, specify that you would like your donation to go to UGM. Please remember to give more than $12 though – that’s what United Way deducts for their administrative fees!
All Charities Campaign
Just as businesses will collect for various charities through the United Way campaigns, the Manitoba provincial government does it as well through their All Charities campaign. You can pledge or give through payroll deduction if you are a provincial government employee. Simply indicate that you would like your donation to go to UGM, and they will take care of the rest, without charging any administrative fees! Each dollar given goes, in full, to UGM.
Union Gospel Mission receives donations of securities, such as shares, through either Abundance Canada (formerly Mennonite Foundation of Canada) or the Canadian Council of Christian Charities (CCCC).
