Change starts here
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!
The 2014 United Way campaign will begin on October 6, 2014. Join us at the Kick-Off and President's Walk launch event in the University Centre from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. on October 6.
Supporting community-based activities
United Way of 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!
