UVic United Way campaign 2018

The UVic annual fundraising campaign for United Way Greater Victoria kicked off on Friday, Sept. 28. Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, the 2018 UVic United Way campaign is off to a strong start!

UVic is a strong supporter of the United Way and our campus community has a proud history of giving generously. Last year we raised $231,223 and I am confident we can beat that amount this year.

New for 2018! Matching donor funds

As an incentive to current United Way donors to increase their donations, and to new donors to join the campaign, the United Way has secured several donors who will match any increase of 15 per cent or more from our current donors and all of the amount pledged by new donors. "This is an amazing opportunity to increase the impact of our generous donors and help the United Way support the areas of greatest need in our community," says Scarth.

Through this matching incentive that is unique to the 2018 UVic United Way campaign, you can double the impact of your donations, and show your local love.

Rose's Story

What does local love look like? From poverty to politics.

The need for youth mental health services is an unignorable issue facing our community. That’s why United Way supports programs that empower young people like Rose by strengthening their emotional and physical well-being. And it’s all thanks to people like you who show your local love by giving back to this place we call home.
