Get Involved!

The University of Guelph is committed to improving lives alongside community partners like The United Way.  During the fall semester, students are encouraged to run fundraisers benefiting the United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin as part of the University's United Way Campaign.

United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin brings people and resources together to address pressing social issues in the community. We believe our community and the people in it matter and know that we can help each other live better lives.


We Can BE BETTER.  #betterispossible

Why We Got Involved

“As part of the University of Guelph community, I had the opportunity to learn about local agencies that fund students on campus and in the community. It gave me a voice to speak about student causes to canvas for funds”- Sasha Monteiro

"Being involved in this years United Way campaign for the University of Guelph has already been an immensely rewarding opportunity. It's awesome to see students all over campus donating and volunteering for such an amazing charity. Looking forward to the semester ahead!" - Remy Orpen


If you would like to volunteer your time at some of the student events, send us an email and we will let you know where the help is needed. The University of Guelph's United Way committee is always seeking volunteers for our various fundraising events.
