3. Your UBC - If you would like, and are able, to contribute -

In September 2011, the University of British Columbia launched the most ambitious fundraising and alumni engagement campaign in Canadian history. The evolution campaign aims to raise $1.5 billion dollars for students, research and community engagement. From medical research to sustainability to scholarships, find a project (https://startanevolution.ubc.ca/find-a-project/) that you would like to be a part of.

For example a gift to Green College will support the programming that makes it an inspiring collaborative community. The College's main academic endowment funds interdisciplinary, non-curricular programs and activities, including the interdisciplinary lecture series.

The UBC Community United Way Campaign will kick off this year on October 11th, 2016 with A Week of Caring. The week will include several campus-wide events to raise money and awareness for United Way’s mission of eradicating poverty and helping seniors and children in the Lower Mainland.
 
This year, UBC celebrates 40 years of campaigning for the United Way.  So, we have set the UBC United Way 2016 campaign goal to help 40 000 people in the greater Vancouver Lower Mainland. Together we can do this, because we are possibility! 
 
New this year is a personalized webpage dedicated solely to the UBC Association of Professors Emeriti: http://www.unitedway.ubc.ca/emeriti/ .
This page will include upcoming event information and a place for you to access payroll pledge forms. 
 
The campaign ended for this year. Thank you for your contribution and see you next year!
