The UBC Community United Way campaign officially opens next week with a Week of Caring, with many opportunities to participate. 

I personally support the United Way, and I encourage you to consider making a donation. On Tuesday, October 10, you will receive a personalized email from inviting you to make a payroll pledge online.

If each member of UBC’s working community were to donate $3 per pay, our campaign would exceed 1 million dollars. This would give hope to more than 100,000 people in all our Lower Mainland and Okanagan communities, benefiting people of all ages.

Learn more about the campaign at your campus, and the different ways you can get involved:

I know we can do this because together, we are possibility.

Thank you for your support of the UBC Community United Way campaign.

President and Vice-Chancellor
