Picking your Passion builds our Laurier community!
Communications, Public Affairs & Marketing
At the kick-off of the 2007 Our Community, Our Laurier campaign, you were invited to “pick your passion” and support an area at Laurier that is important to you. Because of your generosity, almost $600,000 was raised.
Your ongoing commitment to Laurier supports exciting new initiatives like student awards, accessible learning, athletics and the library. With over 460 people participating last year (including 51 new donors), we achieved 92 percent of our participation goal, the highest rate ever!
“This is a wonderful achievement for Laurier,” said Laurier president Dr. Max Blouw. “With your help, we are working hard to maintain and enhance the quality of this wonderful university.”
The 2007 campaign would not have been as successful without the help of the 48 dedicated volunteers across all the faculties and departments.
To celebrate the success of the 2007 Our Community, Our Laurier campaign, and to launch the 2008 campaign—Pick your Passion, Realize your Vision—everyone is invited to a FREE barbecue lunch Wednesday May 14, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., on the Waterloo campus, outside in the quad. If it’s raining, it will be held in the concourse.
