UVic and United Way

UVic supports the United Way

United. We do more.

The University of Victoria is proud to be a strong supporter of United Way Greater Victoria (UWGV). Since 1994, UVic workplace campaigns have raised more than $4.5 million, including $258,821 last year! In 2016, UVic's contribution was part of $4.2 million the UWGV invested in the Capital Regional District. As a result, UWGV-funded programs impacted the lives of 111,000 people in the community including 15,000 children and youth, 2,300 families and 93,000 individuals. To learn more about the impact of your donation please visit United Way Greater Victoria's Impact Calculator.

Postsecondary Challenge Cup

Camosun took home the trophy last year but we are out to capture the Postsecondary Cup this year. We value your support!

What is the Postsecondary Challenge Cup?

Each year, the University of Victoria, Royal Roads University and Camosun College support United Way Greater Victoria with a workplace campaign. In the spirit of fun and friendly competition that benefits the community, they compete for the coveted Postsecondary Challenge Cup. The winner of the Cup is announced at the United Way's Spirit Awards ceremony each spring.

This friendly competition is meant to encourage participation in the campaign, but no matter which institution receives the cup, it is the Greater Victoria community that is the biggest winner.

United Way Spirit Awards

On Apr. 24, 2016 at the United Way Spirit Awards luncheon, UVic was inducted into the Million Dollar Club - where all workplaces that have raised more than one million dollars are recognized for their fundraising efforts.
