United Way Campaign

2019 campaign launches on October 1

Our 2019 campaign goal is to raise $250,000 for United Way Waterloo Region Communities.

Mark your calendars for our campaign launch on Tuesday, October 1 and show your support by helping us turn campus red. Decorate your office, dress up, share photos with #UWUnitedWay, and encourage your department to get involved.

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 $250,000.

On October 1, you'll also receive an email linking you to United Way's secure e-Pledge site, review our quick tips to help walk you through making a donation
