United Way Campaign

The UBC United Way Campaign is happening now with events taking place through various faculties and units on both the Vancouver and Kelowna campuses. This year, the Faculty of Education is organizing a small campaign for faculty and staff to raise funds and awareness for this great cause.

Last year, 750 staff and faculty donated through payroll giving – this year we hope to reach 1000 donors.
