With just under a month left in the United Way campaign, there’s still time to contribute before the campaign ends on Dec. 15, 2023!

The need in our community is greater than ever, and with your help, we can do even better than last year. Thanks to all of you who have already contributed to the campaign’s success through your time and monetary donations.

These donations enable United Way to support food security initiatives, housing supports, vulnerable youth programming and community initiatives in Guelph, Wellington and Dufferin as our community experiences many challenges.

Help us reach our goal

One of the easiest ways to contribute to the United Way campaign is by donating online. Faculty and staff who select the “payroll deduction” option will automatically be set up for this deduction in next year’s 2024 United Way campaign unless they select to “optout” of the recurring donation.

Donate to the United Way campaign today – the deadline to submit a payroll deduction is Dec. 15.

Staff and faculty who make a donation will be entered into the campaign’s grand prize draw, and students who complete their online pledge card will be entered into a special prize draw to win a “one-semester” parking pass!
