Message from the Campaign Committee

For many years, MacEwan University staff, faculty and students have supported the annual United Way Campaign. By providing this support, the university has become part of a community that is recognized for its widespread care and concern for all of its citizens. We must act now as there are currently 120,000 people living in poverty in the Edmonton region -- 40,000 of whom are children.

Poverty is unignorable.

This year, the MacEwan University United Way Campaign will take place in December. We would like to personally invite you to help make a difference in our community.

Your gift to the United Way will help change individual lives and social conditions in the Alberta Capital Region. As an additional service, United Way offers the opportunity for you to direct your gift towards one of the three targeted priority areas–education, income, and wellness–or a registered charity of your choosing.

If you have yet to decide whether to give this year, please take a few minutes to consider what life in the Capital Region would be like without United Way. Together, we represent one of the most critical and extensive collaborative approaches for change. Your generosity has the potential to powerfully and positively impact many lives. Whatever contribution you make will provide members of your community with much-needed assistance and will show our friends and neighbours that MacEwan University continues to be a caring and concerned citizen of the community.

Thank you for your consideration and participation.

-The MacEwan University United Way Committee
