2018 United Way Campaign at the University of Regina

United Way

The University of Regina’s 2018 United Way Campaign has begun and we invite you to be a part of it! Our goal this year is $105,000, one we are confident we can reach with your support.

This year's campaign theme is "Show Your Local Love", appropriate since the United Way of Regina supports thousands of people each year through its relationship with many funded partners such as the Canadian Mental Health Association, Family Service Regina, and the Regina Open Door Society. For this reason, supporting the United Way is a wonderful way of giving back to our community, and something that is very much in line with our strategic plan’s theme that “together we are stronger.” If you choose, the University, as a registered charity, can also be a recipient of your United Way donations.

The United Way Campaign is an opportunity for our University family to support the local community and pay forward the charitable support we receive each year. As a charity, the University is blessed to have the support of generous donors including faculty, staff, alumni, businesses and individuals who are passionate about the power of education. Their contributions make possible financial support for our students, research, programs and investments in our University infrastructure.

What is the United Way?

United Way Regina provides funding assistance to more than 20 local agencies that deliver a variety of programs and services to children, youth and families. One important area of focus is reading success, a critical factor that increases the chances of staying in school versus dropping out.  

How You Can Participate

There are a number of ways in which you can participate. You can show your support with a simple donation, or you and your colleagues may want to organize an event to raise funds. Examples of some events are bake sales, pay to dress-up or dress-down days, or 'mini golf' tournaments. If you organize an event, please let Shayla Bonhomme know what, when and where, and we'll help you publicize the event. We are also collecting children’s books to place in school libraries or to be used for literacy programs – you can drop a book off with any campaign committee member.
