Because of you, thousands of people know that someone has their back.

GenNext East Ontario works with local partners across Prescott-Russell, Ottawa, Lanark and Renfrew Counties to address the most pressing issues in our region, advocate for change, and fundraise for support.

This Giving Tuesday, show your local love and rally to create long-term solutions to the toughest social challenges in your community.

The needs haven’t gone away. Your community still needs you.

Another year has shown us that even when we start to feel a sense of normalcy, our region’s most vulnerable people will be picking up the pieces for a long time. Burnout, job instability, anxiety, loneliness—the added pressures of life during a pandemic are still showing up in big ways.

Join us this Giving Tuesday to make a difference. Every gift will be matched to help break down barriers and improve lives from Deep River through to Hawkesbury*.

Make the holidays a little brighter for someone in need.

This Giving Tuesday, let that special person know how they’ve brightened up your life.

The past two years haven’t been easy for anyone. But so many people are helping our communities make it through dark times. Whether it’s for a front-line worker, teacher, neighbour, work colleague, friend or family member, show them how much their support means by giving a gift that changes lives.

These are just a small sample of the card designs available.

Your donation is in good hands.

We invest your gift in smart, strategic ways, to ultimately move the needle.

Discover real stories of impact.

Because of you, we’re making a difference in people’s lives every day.

United Way partner, Hot Shoe Productions, offers youth the opportunity to produce videos and stories, empowering them with valuable work experience they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.

Through virtual one-on-one, grief, trauma, and group therapy, residents in need can continue to access the mental health services they need as they navigate the impacts of the pandemic. 

Thanks to our partnership with Unsafe at Home Ottawa, more people experiencing violence at home can find comfort in knowing that there’s somewhere for them to turn.

United Way East Ontario partners with the Distress Centre to ensure people like Katherine have a place to turn and resources to support them when they need it.
