United Way Surpasses the Halfway Mark

It’s mid-way through the 2004 UBC United Way campaign to raise $525,000 and things are rolling along smoothly, says Stan Auerbach, Chair of this year’s campaign.

“Support from the campus community has been tremendous,” Auerbach says. “We’re more than halfway to our goal and the donations continue to come in.”

Auerbach says one of the reasons this year’s campaign is continuing to build on the success of previous years is the participation of campus staff in presentations hosted by this year’s UBC Loaned Representative, Debra Elliott.

“The presentations go beyond United Way’s website [www.unitedway.ubc.ca] and brochures by incorporating a personal story and further insight as to where your dollars go,” Elliott says. “It’s also an opportunity to answer any questions donors have.”

“Elliott says the length of a presentation varies from five minutes to 20, depending on the time available and the needs of the department. Some departments choose to show the United Way video, others include an agency speaker, and some are more informal and just ask for a brief introduction to United Way.”

There is still time to book a presentation for your department. Elliott is available until mid-December, and donations will be accepted until the end of the tax year, December 31.

For more information about this year’s campaign, or to book a presentation, please contact Liz King, Campaign Coordinator at 604.822.8929 or by email at united.way@ubc.ca.
