Celebrating the Non-Profit Sector

As part of the Canada’s 150th celebrations, the United Way of Prince Edward Island is working with others to celebrate the contributions of the non-profit sector in PEI in our Island communities.

 “Through this initiative, the United Way is focused on 3 activities” states Andrea MacDonald of the United Way. “We want to celebrate the growth of the non-profit sector, we want to recognize the contributions of the sector by sharing the stories of individuals and families impacted by the work of the non-profit organizations, and we want to bring together members of the sector to celebrate, network, learn and plan for the future.”

 The contributions of the non-profit sector are critical in developing diverse, resilient, self-reliant and vibrant communities that are better prepared to adapt to ever changing economic and social challenges. The strength, depth and recognition of the non-profit sector as PEI’s third largest sector deserves celebration.

 This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the United Way of PEI, the Community Foundation of PEI, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast. The United Way of PEI has provided matching funds to this project, aimed at celebrating the Island’s non-profit sector.

Islander Stories 

Lives have been changed thanks to the work of the people and organizations in the non-profit sector. One of the best ways to recognize the value of the work of the non-profit sector is to hear the stories of how lives have been changed. The "Islander Stories"  project allows people to share their stories about how non-profit organizations have enriched their lives. Coming Soon!

Celebrating the Legacy

Celebrating the Legacy - sharing the story project will increase awareness among Islanders of how the non-profit sector has shaped our communities and province. This video project will share the contributions and visions of individuals, groups and organizations engaged in the sector across PEI. Coming Soon!

Come Together, Leave Connected

Through a combination of learning, exploring and connecting, this conference will lay the foundation for those working in PEI's non-profit sector to cultivate relationships that will help the Island's many communities to thrive.  Click here for more conference information.

"The United Way was kind enough to help the Native Council of PEI create my position, there's kind of been a lapse between the younger generation and the elders in the community, so the programming is to enrich everyone's life and to understand their cultural piece and past tradition."

- Christina, Native Council of PEI
