Record total is College's tenth triple-digit contribution in a row.

Fanshawe's United Way committee is proud to announce that you have helped surpass our 2019 United Way campaign goal. College staff, students, alumni and retirees have made the largest contribution in Fanshawe's history, a record-setting $136,777 donation to the United Way!

This all-campus total, which reflects funds raised through payroll contributions, as well as fundraising events and student activities, will be distributed to United Way agencies across each of Fanshawe's campus communities.

“In supporting the College's community involvement in the United Way, it provides us with an amazing opportunity to help support people facing issues of poverty, homelessness, and breaking down the barriers to education,” says Michelle Giroux, campaign chair. “The United Way committee members have been hard at work throughout this past year to increase the visibility of the Fanshawe campaign and raise awareness to local issues that present within our local region. It has been a rewarding experience to be involved with the committee that represents Fanshawe and works tirelessly to support our community.”

Fanshawe has surpassed the $100,000 mark for ten years in a row. Our total contributions to the United Way amount to more than $1.6 million since the College began donating.

"I would like to acknowledge the help and support of this year's campaign committee, canvassing champions, volunteers and donors, along with our sponsored employee Trudy Kitchen," Giroux says. "We also congratulate our highest fundraisers, the Campus Security Services and Emergency Management Office team with their efforts for the annual Shoe Shine event, which was led by Special Constable Mike Dukic."

Thank you for showing your local love, supporting our community and giving families hope. Together, we are making local issues unignorable.
