Change Starts Here.

The Langara College United Way Campaign is an annual workplace campaign that incorporates a range of events for students, staff and faculty to help raise funds for a great cause.

Langara’s United Way Employee Campaign has entered its 3rd decade of successful fundraising and Pledge Weeks will run from September 18 - 29, 2023, although donations can be made until Dec 31st, 2023. 

Although this fall’s campaign is a bit less active than in previous years, you can participate by pledging through payroll deduction or by donating online and by attending the ever-popular Lost and Found Sale. As always, every dollar raised goes towards supporting those in need within our local community.

United Way BC collaborates with donors and community partners, invests in more than 150 agencies and 300 programs, researches community needs, evaluates program outcomes and advocates for change.

Why support United Way BC? Did you know:

  • As the second largest funder of social services next to the government in Canada, the United Way relies on employee donations to support more than 150 agencies to deliver over 300 services and programs throughout the Lower Mainland.
  • The United Way’s presence in the Lower Mainland includes programs administered by the Little Mountain Neighbourhood House Society, Aunt Leah’s Independent Lifeskills Society and the Network of Inner City Community Services Society among many, many others.
  • Through 52 United Way-funded programs, more than 10,000 children and their families benefited from family drop-in programs where they learned parenting skills, received supports and benefited from early literacy programs. 
  • Through United Way-funded programs, 22,000 young children and their caregivers were provided with 30,000+ healthy meals and snacks – by receiving nutritious food, these children were better prepared to pay attention and to learn skills that helped make them school-ready.
