Leave for Change

The University of Guelph was the first university in Canada to support Leave for Change, an initiative that allows employees to volunteer overseas for short assignments in developing countries. The program offers an amazing opportunity to contribute your knowledge and skills to work in an international development project, expand your personal and professional horizons and acquire a deeper understanding of broader global issues. 

United Way

The University traditionally raises the largest single contribution from a Guelph organization through fundraising and other volunteer activities for the United Way of Guelph and Wellington.

The University's United Way Campaign has been successful for so many years because of the tremendous dedication, hard work and generosity of our many volunteers.

A Partner in the Time to Give Challenge

The University of Guelph is proud to be a partner in the Time to Give Challenge, an initiative developed by the Volunteer Centre of Guelph/Wellington to encourage employers to promote volunteerism among their employees.
