Laurier's United Way Campaign runs between October 6th-24th, 2014.
A key part of Laurier’s focus on inspiring lives of leadership and purpose is supporting the communities in which we reside. It has been a proud part of our history, and is an essential part of our future. Laurier’s support takes many forms, and each year during the month of October, one of the ways we impact our communities is by supporting the United Way of Kitchener Waterloo & Area, the Brant United Way and United Way Toronto through Laurier’s United Way campaign.
Why should I make a pledge?
The impact the United Way’s member agencies have on the people who use their services is profound. Many of us have benefitted from these services directly, or have friends or family members who have. This is the bigger picture that we hope people understand when they make the decision about supporting the campaign.
United Way’s 2014 campaign is centered around three pillars: from poverty to possibility;
healthy people, strong communities and all that kids can be.
How can I contribute?
Members of the Laurier community can contribute to the United Way by:
- Using a KW pledge form or Brant pledge form to donate through payroll deduction
- Using a pledge form to donate by cheque, cash, pre-authorized chequing or credit card
- In addition to your pledge forms, we encourage you and your department to come up with some creative ways to generate donations: toonie dress-down days, pot lucks or bake sales or friendly competitions between departments. Share your ideas and photos, and we may share them on the website!
All United Way gifts are charitable donations for tax purposes. If you wish to make a gift to the United Way, please return your Brant pledge form to Jeanette Wilson for the Brantford campus or your KW pledge form to Wally Pirker for the Kitchener, Toronto and Waterloo locations. The campaign closes on October 24.
To be eligible for the “early-bird” draws, please submit your donation by end of day on October 20th in Waterloo and in Brantford.
