Fanshawe to contribute $112,065 to the United Way.

Fanshawe staff, students and retirees will make the highest United Way contribution in the College's history.

At the campaign celebration on January 29, 2015, Fanshawe President Peter Devlin announced Fanshawe will contribute $112,065 to the United Way. This all-campus total will be distributed across each of the four counties where Fanshawe is located.

"Just as Fanshawe unlocks the potential of students, staff and our community, the United Way touches lives through their powerful community impact," said President Devlin. "We both look to the future and want to know we've made a difference in people's lives. This year's donation to the United Way will go a long way in helping those in need within the region."

This all-campus total reflects funds raised through payroll and Leadership contributions, as well as special events from the College's campuses in London, Woodstock, Simcoe and St. Thomas. This is the fifth consecutive year Fanshawe has surpassed the $100,000 mark. To date, Fanshawe has contributed more than $1.2 million to United Way over the history of their campaign.
