United Way Campaign

2018 United Way campaign reaches goal with campus support

Thanks to the generosity of the University of Waterloo community, the United Way campaign has met and surpassed our 2018 goal of $270,000. Whether you donated, volunteered or attended an event, you made a difference in your community and we want to thank you.

The 2018 campaign kicked off in October with Go Red Day and continued with the second annual Souper Thursday. Campus departments and units kept the excitement going by hosting bake sales, pie-throwing competitions and silent auctions. 

As you think ahead to your 2019 charitable contributions, please consider keeping or adding the University of Waterloo’s United Way campaign. Pledging an ongoing monthly payroll deduction is one easy way to support this important community work year-round.
