UVic employees

Donating to the UVic United Way campaign has never been easier! All payroll deduction and credit card donations by UVic employees are made through the United Way e-pledge system. The only exceptions are payroll deductions that you allow to roll over (although we encourage you to think about increasing the amount!) or donations made by cheque. Cheques may also be sent directly to the Campaign Assistant.

How to donate

New donors: Thank you for choosing to donate to this year's UVic United Way campaign! To make your donation, please visit the United Way e-pledge system. Once you click on the e-pledge link, you will be guided through the process of creating a new user profile. Once this process is complete, you will follow a step-by-step process to make your donation online. If you have questions or need any assistance, please contact the UVic United Way Campaign Assistant.

Existing donors: If you donated by payroll deduction last year, your donation will continue. You will receive an email thanking you for your contribution and confirming that your deductions will continue. The email will also provide information about how to change the amount of, or cancel, your payroll deduction.

Please contact if you have questions or for more information.
