Supporting Our Community

United Way Glenelg host a series of events each year.
The purpose of these events is:
  • To educate the community about the work of United Way Glenelg.
  • To celebrate the volunteers, individuals and businesses who are making a difference in our community.
  • To raise funds to help us continue our work in supporting the community.

You can help by attending or hosting an event, organising your own fundraising activity or simply by spreading the word about the huge difference we make throughout the Glenelg Shire region.

Live and virtual Shark Pitch

September 1, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 8:30 pm

United Way Glenelg is proud to present Shark Pitch, a spectacular live and virtual crowdfunding event where we will connect people who want to make a change with people who are doing it! 

This spectacular event will support three local community organisations that will pitch their idea to a live audience for financial and in-kind support of their program. Our emcee will engage with the audience to pledge funds, with the aim of raising in excess of $8,000 per organisation. Thanks to the support of AWA Alliance Bank and United Way Glenelg your donation will be matched.

Live Pitching begins at 6.00pm
