Because anyone can be an everyday hero...

Thank you for joining us for the 2014 United Way campaign! We are thrilled to be co-chairing the campaign again this year.

The United Way is important to us and the university. They strive to build a better Calgary through strategic partnerships and investments, and works to leverage donations to create positive change in three vital areas:

  • Poverty
  • Kids
  • Communities

This important work would not be possible without your unwavering commitment and desire to make a measurable difference by contributing to our campaign.

Thanks to our entire faculty, staff and student community, we surpassed our goal and raised more than $407,000 for the United Way in 2013 – a record-breaking year across the board. The tremendous generosity of students, faculty, staff, alumni and volunteers clearly demonstrated our university's commitment to engaging with and playing an important role in our community. With all our efforts, we hope to build on this momentum this year.

Now, we are aiming even higher. Our goal is to raise $425,000. 

For all the kids, individuals and families who use United Way programs every year, we are doing this for you.

The theme of this year’s campaign is Everyday Heroes. You may recognize people wearing Everyday Hero T-shirts, lapel pins, hosting events, filling out pledge cards or asking for donations. Every little bit helps, and please know you are helping the tens of thousand of people the United Way supports every year. 

Let's create a university community of giving. And let's do it together.

We thank you for what you do for our university and for our community. Whether your donation comes in dollars or time, you make a difference in the lives of Calgarians as we commit to making Calgary a great city for everyone.

Please give what you can, in any way you can.
