Employee Giving Campaign enters its final week

Thank you to all staff and faculty who donated to the UFV/United Way Employee Giving Campaign this past week! Our students will become difference-makers in our community, helping the Fraser Valley rebuild and recover from the pandemic and recent floods. But many need our help to get there.

Did you know that GIVING TUESDAY is tomorrow, November 30? This global celebration inspires people all over the world to support the causes nearest to their hearts.

And great news! All donations to UFV will be matched until December 31. Or, if you have been thinking of establishing a named bursary or scholarship, now is a great time as we are topping up all new endowments to $25,000! For more information, please contact us at giving@ufv.ca.

All employees who have donated in 2021 are entered into our weekly prize draw. This past week’s winners are:

  • Elaine Newman— $50 Cineplex Gift Card
  • Madeleine Hardin — $50 Shoppers Gift Card
  • David Thomson — Pair of tickets to an Abbotsford Canucks home game

You can donate to UFV, the United Way or both via payroll deduction. You can also donate to UFV online here.

UFV is responding to the flooding in Abbotsford in a variety of ways and co-founded the Abbotsford Disaster Relief Fund to help those affected. To donate, please visit https://abbotsfordcf.org/disaster.

Thank you once again and happy Giving Tuesday!
