Guelph, On, October 29, 2013 – Thanks to the support of its staff, the City of Guelph raised $66,000 during its annual United Way fundraising campaign.
This exceeds the goal set in September to raise $55,000.
In just four weeks, City staff organized several unique fundraising events, all with the common goal of raising money to support the community. City staff also made contributions by using traditional methods of donating, including pledge forms and payroll deductions.
“Thank you to all City of Guelph staff who contributed to surpassing our fundraising goal,” said Mayor Karen Farbridge, the City’s United Way campaign chair. “What set this year’s campaign apart from other years was the greater participation across the organization which allowed us to raise $66,000 for the United Way.”
