United Way Campaign

Our 2017 campaign

We've officially launched our 2017 campaign with our annual 'Go Red' day and saw enthusiastic involvement from all corners of campus.

Cross-campus involvement is key to the campaign’s success and we look forward to counting on your support to help to meet our goal of $270,000.

On October 3, faculty and staff received an email linking to the University of Waterloo's United Way campaign's secure e-Pledge site, review our quick tips to help walk you through making a donation

In 2016 the University of Waterloo United Way campaign raised over $275,000 for the United Way. 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.

    How did black and gold go red?

    Thanks to volunteers across campus, the University of Waterloo went red today to support the university’s 2016 United Way campaign.  You can even find red cookies in Food Services outlets! Take photos of the red you see around campus and post them on Twitter or Instagram with the #UWUnitedWay hashtag.

    Some of our volunteers kicked it off a little early at the United Way Train Pull on Friday, September 23 when the University of Waterloo team took the trophy once again!
