Organizers of UBC's United Way campaign are all smiles following the latest report on contributions which shows a total of $301,543, surpassing the campaign goal of $290,265.
The campaign ended officially Nov. 30, but contributions have continued to come in.
"Every year, people at UBC show their generous spirit," said campaign co-chair Margaret Sayer of University Computing Services. "And we're number one again in Leaders of the Way."
Leaders of the Way are donors who contribute $1,000 or more. The university
has continued its traditional top ranking among Lower Mainland
organizations, with 63 leadership donors this year. UBC also has the largest employee campaign in the Lower Mainland.
Sayer shared chairing duties with Prof. Ray Hall of Theatre, Film and Creative Writing. The campus campaign was organized by faculty, staff and student volunteers.
