College's highest-ever contribution tops triple-digits for eighth year in a row.
Fanshawe's United Way committee is proud to announce that the College has surpassed its 2017 United Way campaign goal.
College staff, students, alumni and retirees have made the largest contribution in Fanshawe's history, a record-setting $116,114.72 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 four campus communities in London, Woodstock, St. Thomas and Simcoe.
"It's always wonderful to see the response of our Fanshawe family to the needs of our community, even in a year as challenging as 2017 was," says campaign chair Candace Miller. "We're thrilled to help touch so many lives through the efforts of United Way sponsored agencies in our region. This kind of support is so important and makes such a powerful difference in the lives of our students, colleagues, friends and neighbours."
Fanshawe has surpassed the $100,000 mark for eight years in a row. Our total contributions to the United Way amount to more than $1.5 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 Laura Visconti," Miller says. "We also congratulate this year's Labour Appreciation Award winners John Conley and Dana Copeland and our highest fundraisers, the Student Success department, including 'Champion of the Year' Linda MacLeod."
