United Way CEO Joan Fisk Challenges The Community

United Way Must Find New Ways To Connect With Donors

The first campaign by United Way Waterloo Region Communities is underway with a simple message
from new CEO Joan Fisk.

Joan Fisk Said the "U" Word - UNACCEPTABLE! And boy, is she right!

“We need to change the power of poverty” says Fisk.

“In an area known for its collaboration and innovation” she adds “why are almost 50 thousand people
living in low income situations?”

Poverty can destroy families, limit futures, and tear at our social fabric.

“It is holding back far too many people from participating in the full wealth of this community” says Fisk,
“and it needs to be our first priority”

United Way Waterloo Region Communities is in a unique position to be the agent of change. Through
our seats at many tables, and our collaboration with a vast range of partners we are ensuring people
have the building blocks they need to succeed.

In order to achieve this goal, United Way is looking to gather 7 million dollars to support people in every
corner of the region.

“It’s time to step up” says Fisk “We need to rise to our biggest challenge. It’s time to love where you live
and work together to change the power of poverty”

Now, the work begins. Connect With United Way at Link below.
