Imagine Canada’s Ethical Code

United Way Oakville places a high value on our relationship with you, our donors. Without your support we would not be able to fulfill our promise to the community of creating opportunities for a better life for everyone. Thank you for your commitment.

UWO believes that transparency and accountability are essential to our success. With this in mind, we have recently joined Imagine Canada’s Ethical Code Program.

The Ethical Fundraising and Financial Accountability Code lays out a set of standards for charitable organizations to manage and report their financial affairs responsibly.

By adhering to these standards, UWO is complying with generally accepted practices for soliciting and managing donor dollars. This is important because you, as donors, are entitled to transparency and the greatest impact possible for your investment in our community through United Way.

If you have any questions about our adherence to the Ethical Code, please feel free to contact Aideen Hennessy, Director of Finance Administration at 905-845-5571 ext. 226. You can also learn more about Imagine Canada’s Ethical Fundraising and Financial Accountability Code or download the Ethical Code itself.
