Update: UBC United Way Campaign

With over $290,000 raised, the 2005 UBC United Way Campaign is well underway.

“Support from the campus community has been tremendous -- we’re already halfway to our goal and the donations continue to come in,” says Laura Laverdure, co-ordinator for this year’s campaign. “While traditional fundraisers such as the Kick-Off Event in September or Land and Building Services’ International Food Festival continue to be very successful, new fundraisers, such as the $1 donation coupons being sold at Food Services establishments or the VP Students & Equity Relay Race on Oct. 25 are helping to raise funds and awareness throughout campus.”

One of the reasons this year’s campaign is continuing to build on the success of previous years is the participation of staff in presentations hosted by this year’s UBC Loaned Representative, Don Erhardt. “Presentations go beyond United Way’s website and brochures by incorporating personal stories, further insight as to where your dollars go and an opportunity to answer any questions donors have,” says Erhardt.

To learn more about how contributions make a difference, visit www.unitedway.ubc.ca. There is still time to book a presentation for your department and donations will be accepted until the end of the tax year, Dec. 31. For more information about this year’s campaign or to book a presentation, please contact Laura Laverdure, Campaign Co-ordinator at 604.822.8929 or by email at united.way@ubc.ca.
