Our workplace is proud to stand united with community, and we’re honoured to be recognized on United Way Greater Toronto’s 2022 United Way Local Leaders List. By working with United Way, we’re helping to transform our region into a place where each and every person has the chance to thrive.
All three of the University of Toronto campuses are in the communities supported by United Way Greater Toronto. In 2020 alone, our faculty, librarians, staff, and students generously contributed over $560,000 to United Way.
The 2021 campaign ran from October 29 – December 31. U of T invited all of our community members to contribute towards an equitable recovery from the pandemic.
Generous support from donors has enabled United Way Greater Toronto to provide various programs that serve the community across their network of 280 agencies.
U of T’s Virtual United Way Campaign Kickoff
On Friday, October 29, 2021, Meric Gertler, President, University of Toronto, and Kelly Hannah-Moffat, Vice-President, People Strategy, Equity & Culture, launch the University of Toronto’s 2021 fundraising campaign for the United Way Greater Toronto.
Representatives from the United Way Greater Toronto share how the money we have raised in the past has helped our communities and how your generosity this year can make a huge impact.
Three critical areas in 2021
- Meeting basic, fundamental needs like affordable housing and food security
- Tackling local poverty, discrimination and inequity at its root
- Building an equitable recovery through initiatives like U of T’s School of Cities Leading Social Justice Fellowship
