Give Every Month (GEM)

Welcome to our GEM Club!

As a member of our GEM Club, you can help to create a stronger, more equitable Northumberland County for the more than 87,000 individuals and families that call it home.

GEM members support United Way Northumberland with a monthly donation that is automatically charged to their credit card or drafted from their bank account. For us, this is wonderful, as the funds simply show up in our account and we do not have to stop changing lives to raise these vital funds. Our GEM donors also find it very convenient as they don’t have to take the time to write a cheque, or make an online donation … it just happens. It also allows some donors to stretch their giving by spreading out the payments over the full year. It’s just like that Netflix subscription, but instead its a subscription to a better community!

The other great part is that when we contact our GEM members, we simply get to tell great stories of how their donation is making an impact in the lives of our community. We no longer have to reach out to request funds, which is sometimes awkward for both of us. Correspondence from us simply gets a whole lot more fun to receive.

Plus, with your monthly gift, you are helping to sustain essential programs and services in our community for years to come!

Please consider becoming a GEM today, and join other donors in the community, who each month, are making Northumberland County a better place for everyone.

Cory Hazael, GEM Member, Past Board of Director

“For me, a monthly donation is just so much easier. As one lump sum, it would be more of a thought process of how much, and can I afford it? But when donating monthly, I am able to contribute a meaningful amount in small bits. It’s the simplicity of donating a smaller amount over the year that may have been more difficult to give all at once.”
