Join FIRST UNITED’s Community Giving Program and join thousands of others who are helping provide sanctuary in the heart of our city. Whether you’re an individual, a business, funder, or Community of Faith, we have a giving program for you to join and that we are proud to recognize you as part of.
Only about 50% of our revenue comes from our donors. To continue meeting the survival-needs of those who call the Downtown Eastside home, advocating for justice, and providing spiritual care to those who seek it, we need your help today. Please, join our Community Giving Program and help create a neighbourhood where everybody can thrive.
For individuals looking to make a difference through a personal contribution, join our Community Donors. Whether as a Frontline Monthly Donor or with a one-time gift, you can join our largest and most diverse group of supporters. Your donation will ensure we can continue serving thousands in the DTES today.Community Donors
