†Laurier's United Way 2015 Campaign runs from Oct 8-29†
A key part of Laurierís focus on inspiring lives of leadership and purpose is supporting the communities in which we reside. It has been a proud part of our history, and is an essential part of our future. Laurierís support takes many forms, and each year during the month of October, one of the ways we impact our communities is by supporting the United Way of Kitchener Waterloo & Area, the Brant United Way and United Way Toronto through Laurierís United Way campaign.
Why should I make a pledge?†
The impact the United Wayís member agencies have on the people who use their services is profound. Many of us have benefited from these services directly, or have friends or family members who have. This is the bigger picture that we hope people understand when they make the decision about supporting the campaign.†
How can I contribute?
Members of the Laurier community can contribute to the United Way by:
All United Way gifts are charitable donations for tax purposes. If you wish to make a gift to the United Way, please return your Brant pledge form to Beth Sanders†for the Brantford campus or your KW pledge form to Wally Parker for the Kitchener, Toronto and Waterloo locations.
