2012 UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA
UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN
SEPTEMBER 4 - OCTOBER 19
A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT INDIRA SAMARASEKERA
Each year, the University of Alberta asks employees to support the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region. We do this because of the confidence we have in the United Way’s ability to make a real and lasting difference in our community.
As in previous years, we believe the most effective way to finding solutions to community problems are by working together. We at the University of Alberta are very proud of our United Way track record. In Campaign 2011, we raised a total of $647,303. We hope to exceed that amount this year.
In order to save paper, the U of A United Way 2012 campaign will send only one mailing to staff. The Committee asks you to please consider returning the pledge as soon as it is received. The pledge allows several payment options – payroll, credit card, cheque or direct debit and the opportunity to post-date to your chosen payment period.
You can choose how your gift will have an impact. There are more than 100 programs within three focus areas—Education, Income and Wellness—that the United Way and its partners can make their impact.
Changing the life of someone in our community is one of the greatest feelings you can ever have and one of the greatest gifts you can provide. Please join me in supporting the University of Alberta’s 2012 United Way Campaign.
Indira V. Samarasekera, O.C.
President and Vice-Chancellor
