“Imagine a community where all people are able to reach their potential, where all neighbourhoods are thriving and our community members enjoy the best quality of life in our province or nationally, regardless of their gender, age, race, abilities.”
This is the hope of Daniela Seskar-Hencic, Associate Director of Institutional Planning and Analysis and current Chair of the United Way Kitchener Waterloo.
The university’s United Way campaign is in its final stretch, over $190,000 has been raised and with your help we can close that gap and reach our goal of $230,000.
Daniela notes that uWaterloo is one of the greatest and most influential institutions in the community. “We are the builders of brighter and better futures at uWaterloo,” she says. “We have demonstrated our potential to be the incubator of change for this community and beyond, but it takes ideas, people and financial support to bring about change.”
The dollars invested in United Way KW are dollars that go toward the better collective future for the community. When you make a donation with your dollars you’re not only helping the many partners in this community to bring about better life for our citizens, but also building an opportunity for our own ideas and innovation to become reality.
Daniela has been involved with the United Way for two and a half years; she volunteers her time because she believes that a strong community is built on the foundations of collaboration, citizen engagement, respect for diversity, and social justice.
