United Way Campaign

Our 2016 campaign

This fall, we kicked off the University of Waterloo's 2016 United Way campaign. With the help of our amazing volunteers, we turned the campus red to mark the launch of our campaign.

Together, we have raised $273,969.26! We exceeded our goal and had a lot of fun doing it!

It's not too late to donate!

On October 4, you've received an e-mail linking you to the University of Waterloo's United Way campaign's secure ePledge site. Moving online means it's even easier to give, and helps us reduce paper waste.

Know someone who would still like to make a last minute donation? You can give online today or download a pledge form here!

We're thankful for all of the ways you participated and showed support, and we can't wait to see how our community will come together in 2017. 

If you would like to speak to someone about your current giving please contact Alison Boyd (ext. 35136 ).
