Celebrate Winnipeg by giving back
This year, the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Parties are celebrating by giving back to the community. That’s why we’ve partnered with United Way Winnipeg, to add purpose and help us create an impact within our local community.
Every dollar earned through ticket sales at the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Parties will be invested into the community. That means when you pay $5 for a ticket, that full $5 (less GST) will be going to making a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbours.
Why United Way Winnipeg?
United Way Winnipeg are trusted experts on issues impacting the lives of Winnipeggers. Thanks to a grant from the Province of Manitoba that supports all fundraising and administration costs, 100% of donations to United Way Winnipeg go to the community.
Where will the funds be going?
United Way Winnipeg’s investments are focused in areas that make the most significant difference possible.
True North, EDW and United Way Winnipeg identified three key themes for investment that are important issues for our community where there is much work to do – addiction, homelessness, and mental health. Funds will be provided to agencies working in these important sectors, on projects and outcomes that will have the greatest impact on the lives of Winnipeggers.
How is it decided which agencies get the funds?
Together, True North, EDW and United Way Winnipeg chose agencies aligned with the pillars of addiction, homelessness, and mental health. We will provide more information about specific agencies being supported on the completion of the Whiteout Street Parties
How will the money be distributed and by when?
United Way Winnipeg will distribute the money to community organisations within 30 days of receiving the funds from the last Whiteout Street Party.
Will you track the results of these investments?
United Way Winnipeg measures and report on results for all the funds it provides local agencies, and will monitor the impact of funds raised through the Whiteout Street Parties. Local volunteers lead every part of our work — Winnipeggers helping Winnipeggers.
