Change starts here
Dec 10: We are pleased to announce that the 2014 UVic United Way campaign is 99% of the way to reaching our fundraising goal of a quarter of a million dollars raised on campus! Your contribution will help us make the final push beyond our goal of funding positive change in the lives of people in our community.
Thank you for coming out and supporting us at all of our great campaign events and giving generously to United Way Greater Victoria. We could not have made it this far without all of our great supporters here at UVic.
This has been another highly successful campaign this year. We have enjoyed working with all of you, our University of Victoria community, in making a major contribution to United Way Greater Victoria's effort to support individuals, families and community groups in our region. Let us all join together and Unite to Change!
2014 Campaign Goal
Our goal for 2014 is to raise over $250,000 for the community to be donated to United Way Greater Victoria. Thanks to your efforts, we are already over 99% of the way there! Please help us continue to push towards, and beyond, our goal of a quarter million dollars by donating to United Way today.
Introducing the all new UVic United Way Hero campaign
Here at UVic, we think our donors are Heroes. The impact they have in their communities is amazing. To thank our UVic Heroes, we introduced 3 new special prize draws to the campaign this year. More information about these prize draws and becoming a UVic Hero can be found on our Prizes page.
Your contribution makes a difference right here in our community
The annual UVic campaign relies on the generosity and community spirit of UVic employees and students who make individual donations either through payroll deduction or pledges and at events that occur throughout the fall term. Starting in 2014, employees are able to sign up for continuous payroll giving online! This new opportunity helps maintain sustainable support for the programs that people and families rely on everyday. At the start of the campaign, previous donors received a pledge letter that contained information about their previous donation level: please consider increasing your pledge this year if this is possible for you.
“United Way funds a number of vital services in our community, and our campus fundraising efforts contribute significantly to these services every year,” says 2014 UVic campaign chair Kane Kilbey. “Thank you to the entire UVic community for joining us at all of our great campaign events, and for pledging whatever support you can. Every dollar goes a long way towards making positive change in the lives of people in our community. Help us reach our goal of a quarter million dollars this year!”
Please watch for our campaign posters on digital screens around campus—they will point you towards fun events on campus that support the campaign.
We invite you to get involved in any way you can and help us have a successful 2014 campaign!
