Change starts here
The 2014 UVic United Way campaign has begun! We are pleased to announce that we are already over half way to reaching our 2014 fundraising goal of a quarter of a million dollars! Your contribution will help us reach our goal of funding positive change in the lives of people in our community.
Please come out and support us at all of our great campaign events and give generously to United Way Greater Victoria.
We are looking forward to another highly successful campaign this year. We are keen to work with all of you, our University of Victoria community, to help us make 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 66%, or 2 thirds 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.
Supporting community-based activities
United Way Greater Victoria supports community-based activities in three impact areas:
- All that Kids Can Be
- From Poverty to Possibility, and
- Strong Communities
Your contribution makes a difference right here in our community
Our 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 this year, you can now sign up for continuous payroll giving online! This new opportunity will help us maintain sustainable support for the programs that people and families rely on everyday. Your pledge letter will contain information about your 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. “I encourage the entire UVic community to join us at our Kick-Off and President’s Walk, and to pledge 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 events where you can also make your donation.
We invite you to get involved in any way you can and help us have a successful 2014 campaign!
