Your Business Can Make An Impact!

While lives are restored at UGM, transformation is only possible because of our community’s compassion. Thanks to businesses with big hearts and their unique contributions to UGM, we can meet our neighbours’ whole needs.

Financial Partnerships

Donate through your business or encourage your team toward social good through employee giving. You can support specific programs or projects that align with your corporate culture or simply give where it is needed most. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach ‐ we will work together with you to create a program that fits your company’s unique culture.

Community Engagement

Sponsor meals or a UGM event and help provide vital services to the community, while elevating the profile of your business. Inspire your employees, vendors or customers to be creative and give back by hosting your own fundraiser for UGM. Our online tools and resource kit will help translate your ideas into reality.

Gifts in Kind

Basic necessities and hygiene items are a daily need in our community. Contact us to learn about our current needs. Samples, excess inventory, or out-of-season inventory, are all items we may be able to use to help those in need.

Gift of goods may qualify for a charitable tax-deductible receipt.

Awareness & Education

We want to share with you how your support is making a difference for those struggling with homelessness. We would love to customize a virtual workshop or take you on a tour of UGM by video at your virtual staff meeting or lunch and learn. We also offer Executive Leadership Days designed specifically for business leaders to experience the front line of working in the Downtown Eastside.
