United Way Fraser Valley and United Way of the Lower Mainland vote to join as one

The Boards of Directors of United Way Fraser Valley and United Way of the Lower Mainland are proud to announce that the two organizations have voted to combine forces.

This means that the two long-standing United Ways will now operate together as a team serving the Lower Mainland, Sea to Sky corridor, Sunshine Coast and the Fraser Valley from Abbotsford to Boston Bar.

The combined United Way will be called United Way of the Lower Mainland. The head office will be located in Burnaby with an office in Abbotsford. Funds raised in the Fraser Valley will continue to be invested in the Fraser Valley.

Together we can build a better future for everyone in the Fraser Valley from Abbotsford to Boston Bar, the Lower Mainland, Sea to Sky corridor and the Sunshine Coast.
