Student Campaign

Get Involved!

The U of G 2016 United Way Student Campaign provides many different opportunities for interested and engaged students to get involved and support the United Way.

Year after year students make an amazing contribution to the campus United Way campaign by raising both funds and awareness.  Last year, the student campaign raised over $11,000 towards the campus goal of $607,500 and overall, the campus campaign raised more than $625,000.  

If you would like to make a donation you are able to do that through your meal plan by visiting the Hospitality Services website.

If you would like to run a fundraiser event for United Way, contact Kim Hu. She will help you with brainstorming, event planning, and obtaining event promotional/informational materials (stickers, posters, banner).

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.
