Change starts here
We are pleased to announce that the 2014 UVic United Way campaign has exceeded our fundraising goal! Thanks to your contributions we raised over $268,000 for the Greater Victoria community. These funds will make 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 was to raise over $250,000 for the community to be donated to United Way Greater Victoria. Thanks to your efforts, we exceeded this goal, raising $268,000 for United Way!
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.
“I am truly moved by the generosity of the people here at UVic,” says 2014 UVic campaign chair Kane Kilbey. “Money given to United Way is used to create so much positive change in the lives of people in the CRD, and I cannot thank everyone enough for the support they have shown for this community. I am proud of the accomplishment UVic has achieved, and of the increased level of support shown by our campus as a whole.”
