COMMUNITY IMPACT

The United Way Estevan Community Impact Fund is designed to support major projects for community initiatives.

Through this program United Way is able to provide funding for organizations in our community that may not meet the requirements of Member Agency, but do make a lasting and positive impact on our community in one of our three Focus Areas:

  • Helping Kids Be All They Can Be
  • Moving People from Poverty to Possibility
  • Building Strong and Healthy Communities

If you are part of a community organization that is making an impact in our community and would like to apply for funding through the Community Impact Fund, download our application form below.

Day of Caring is an annual event that brings the best out in our community.  United Way Estevan Day of Caring is a full day of people helping people, giving back to our community, family and friends.  Each year United Way assigns local volunteers to local projects to make a difference in our home town.  The event is typically held in the spring and is a great way to get out and enjoy the warmer weather.  A charity BBQ lunch is held for all volunteers and community members who participate in the event.

To find out more about this great program, to volunteer or to nominate someone who could use a hand, please call 306-634-7375 or email heidi.hesselink@unitedwayestevan.com.

United Way Estevan offers two $500 bursaries to graduating ECS students who have shown exemplary community volunteerism.  Applications are available through Student Services at ECS.

By providing meals free of charge to students in need, the ECS Student in Need Food Program hopes to improve household food security and improve student health thus expanding their educational opportunities.  This is a joint project between the School Community Council and the ECS staff.

The Estevan Public Youth Centre is a brand-new, youth focused, non-profit in Estevan, SK. EPYC’s vision is to collectively help youth discover and grow their purpose, passion and potential through innovative and inclusive ways. Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive place for youth in grades 7-12 to experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life, all of which promote a successful transition into adulthood. EPYC strives to lay a solid foundation for a sustainable centre where youth can be themselves, create lasting relationships and be surrounded by positive influences for years to come.

EPYC programming officially starts October 8, 2021! Programming is being offered on Friday and Saturday nights and will grow to include additional weekday evenings and after school. Programming will also include special event nights that focus on peer relationship building and highlighting some of the amazing things that Estevan has to offer.
