At a celebration today, Fanshawe President Peter Devlin announced that College staff, students and retirees have surpassed their campaign goal of $110,000 and will make the largest United Way contribution in the College's history. President Devlin revealed Fanshawe will contribute $113,357.42 to the United Way. This all-campus total will be distributed to United Way agencies across each of Fanshawe's four campus locations.
“Fanshawe students, staff and retirees continue to recognize the importance of making a difference in the lives of those who need assistance through United Way,” said President Devlin. “This donation will go a long way in helping people within our communities. I am very proud of everyone at Fanshawe and thank them for their support.”
“Fanshawe's commitment to our community is reflected in their truly exceptional United Way campaign,” says Andrew Lockie, CEO, United Way London & Middlesex. “The generosity of their faculty, staff, and students exceeded expectations and more importantly, will create lasting change in people's lives right here in London and Middlesex County.”
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 sixth consecutive year Fanshawe has surpassed the $100,000 mark. Fanshawe has contributed more than $1.3 million to United Way since 1995.
