UVic 2013 United Way campaign
IMPORTANT: When filling out your pledge form, please include your signature for payroll deduction authorization at the bottom of section 6.
Welcome to the 2013 UVic United Way campaign! 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 to be Agents of Change!
United Way Greater Victoria supports community-based activities in three impact areas:
- All that Kids Can Be
- From Poverty to Possibility, and
- Healthy People, 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 via the pledge form that will come into your mailbox early in October or at events that occur throughout the fall term. We are introducing continuous payroll deduction this year. Details are contained in the cover letter that is included in your pledge package. This new opportunity will help us maintain sustainable support for the programs that people and families rely on everyday. Your pledge form will contain information about your previous donation level: please consider increasing your pledge this year if this is possible for you.
This year we are also going to be highlighting local campaigns in three of our most active United Way faculties: business, science and engineering. Keep returning to this website to monitor and support your colleagues in these three faculties.
Please watch for our campaign posters on screens around campus – they will point you towards events where you can also make your donation. To kick us off, we will have a campus-wide event held at the Welcome Centre from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, October 7. Bring your completed pledge form and enter your name for a special prize draw!!
I invite you to get involved in any way you can and help us have a successful 2013 campaign!
