COVID-19 Response

The United Way Northwest Territories has worked with our donors, community partners and recipients to help develop and respond to the impacts that the COVID-19 Pandemic is having on the residents of the NWT. Through the below programs, we’ve managed to provide over $300,000 to NWT communities, charities and Indigenous organizations. The United Way NWT is continuing to look for ways to support the evolving needs of NWT residents in light of the global pandemic. Please check back again later for more information on programming.

The following campaigns have ended:

The New Horizons Senior Program is providing grants of up to $5,000 per community to support seniors and their caregivers. 

The Emergency Community Support Fund is being run to provide direct services to vulnerable populations who are impacted by COVID-19.

The Together, we are Strong campaign is being run in collaboration with the Yellowknife Community Foundation to fundraise and support those immediately affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
