Welcome from the UBC United Way Executive Committee

At UBC we have accomplished so much and grown in many ways by upholding our vision of “inspiring people, ideas and actions for a better world.” UBC’s longstanding partnership with the United Way has helped fulfill this mandate, by leading locally and supporting the wellbeing of our broader community.

Together, we can help people thrive.

Without the generosity of donors like you, it would not be possible for United Way to have the impact it does. A gift of just $5 per paycheque (the cost of a cup of coffee) is enough to provide 1 child access to a program that teaches social skills and fosters emotional development, helping them get along better with their peers. For the first time ever, we have introduced an exciting new partnership with Ethical Bean, and by pledging as little as $5/paycheque (the cost of a coffee), we’ll cover your coffee for the whole month of November!

Together, we can help build healthy communities across our province.

Join us in continuing to support UBC’s only charity of choice by getting involved in UBC’s United Way campaign.  With your commitment, we can continue to support the United Way and all the work it does in our own communities, from funding after-school programs for children to ensuring seniors have access to the resources they need to live a safe and fully supported life. Find out how you can become a donor by making an online pledge by following this link. 

If you have any questions about the UBC United Way campaign or the United Way, please feel free to contact either of us or our UBC United Way Campaign office. We will be happy to speak with you.
