United Way of Peel Region is an organization that cares about helping people now and in the future. The Forever Fund ensures that this tradition of caring continues into the future for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
When you make a gift to The Forever Fund, the capital remains intact, only the income earned is used. This perpetuates your gift for the benefit of generations to come and allows United Way of Peel Region to make long-range plans.
All assets of The Forever Fund are professionally managed to achieve a balance between long-term security of capital, asset growth and a level of annual income that will allow for the funding of vital health and human care services.
