President Chakma and Western's United Way Committee revealed recently that the campus community raised an amazing $745, 014 in the 2014 campaign. This year's donation moved Western's cummulative giving over the $10 million dollar mark. Thank you for your support of the United Way of London and Middlesex.
Congratulations to Western's Leslie Gloor Duncan, she was recently featured in the London Free Press as a long-time United Way supporter who increased her gift to the Leadership level, meaning she was able to double the impact of her donation through the United Way's Leadership Challenge Grant. This grant provides a dollar for dollar match when you make a Leadership gift for the first time. Check out Leslie's story.
Western campus members are being challenged to ask themselves – what would happen in our community if we doubled the number of participants involved in the 2014 United Way campaign? This year’s United Way goal is being called “Project 100%” and the committee is looking to double participation, awareness and community engagement. The campaign officially kicked off on Oct. 21 with a game of United Way Jeopardy to highlight the critical importance of helping to create a community where everyone matters. More campaign facts.
When you support the United Way, your donation stays in London and Middlesex County. Your financial support is invested in programs that have the proven ability to change people's lives and helps make our community stronger, healthier and more productive.
The possibilities are limitless - get involved in your department's/faculty's United Way campaign, buy a coffee on United Way Coffee Day on November 27th or volunteer at a United Way funded agency. Bringing your own unique blend of talents and interests can have a dramatic impact on your community and as an added bonus you'll learn about yourself.
United Way’s Community Impact Agenda identifies that United Way can create change not only through investments in critical programs and services, but also through efforts to advocate and mobilize our community to understand and respond to key issues that matter right here in London and Middlesex County.
