United Way

United way is raising money at Trent University through BBQ fundraisers on a sunny day

United Way

United Way

Trent University's faculty, staff and retirees support the community in which they live and work through an annual campaign to raise money for the United Way of Peterborough & District. Together we have raised more than $1.9 million for the United Way since 1965.

The 2017 campaign goal is $80,000

We can't reach it without your help. 

Kickoff BBQ 

The annual kick-off BBQ will be held on Thursday, September 28, 2017, on the upper podium, by Champlain College. Stop by for a burger or hotdog with all the fixings, and a pop for just $5.00! 

Complete your United Way pledge form at the BBQ to be entered in a special early-bird draw for a Trent hoodie.

Pledge Forms

Pledge forms will be mailed out to all Trent faculty, staff and retirees in the Peterborough region. Return yours early to be entered into weekly prize draws! 

Did you know: 

  • You can make a one-time donation on your pledge form
  • You can indicate your donation be directed to a specific registered Canadian charity; they don't need to be receiving support from the United Way
  • You can direct your donation to the Durham Region United Way, or elsewhere if you prefer
  • All donations (one-time or monthly gifts) can be made by cash, cheque, credit card or through payroll deduction

Basket Raffle

The basket raffle is back for another year! Stay tuned for basket and ticket information.
