partnerships and collaborations

Ontario Trillium Foundation

The Ontario Trillium Foundation has provided funding for several United Way of Peel Region initiatives including:

  • Peel Counts 2011
    United Way of Peel Region and Region of Peel engaged community agencies, service providers, businesses and residents around the demand for human services and the most impactful data to measure community wide-positive change. The results from those stakeholder sessions helped inform the community data and actions outlined in the Peel Counts report.
    Local community funders – including United Way of Peel Region – were asked by community stakeholders to assist the non-profit sector in community wide planning that would result in greater collective impact for the community and residents. With the support of an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant these two lead organizations have used the RBA framework with the community to develop outcomes for each of the nine priorities identified by the community.
  • Chinese Advisory Council
    Established in 2006, the Chinese Advisory Council, assists United Way in understanding the needs and challenges of Peel’s Chinese community and in building strong community relationships. The formation of the Chinese Advisory Council is part of a broader United Way initiative to foster and build relationships within ethno-specific communities in Peel.
  • South Asian Community Advisory Council
    Established in 2009, the South Asian Community Advisory Council, assists United Way in understanding the needs and challenges of Peel’s South Asian community and in building strong community relationships. The formation of the South Asian Community Advisory Council is part of a broader United Way initiative to foster and build relationships within ethno-specific communities in Peel.
  • Black Community Advisory Council
    Established in 2010, the Black Community Advisory Council, assists United Way in understanding the needs and challenges of Peel’s Black community and in building strong community relationships. The formation of the Black Advisory Council is part of a broader United Way initiative to foster and build relationships within ethno-specific communities in Peel.
