Community Campaign, Stronger Together!
Communications, Public Affairs & Marketing
As we welcome a new cohort of students and classes begin for fall term, it is a great opportunity to reflect on the significant pride the Laurier community shares. For years, faculty and staff have generously supported the university’s internal campaign to help enrich the lives of Laurier students. Today, we invite our colleagues to get on board with this year’s Community Campaign: Stronger Together.
In celebration of this year’s launch, join us for a free coffee or tea Thursday, Sept. 13, between 9 a.m. and noon on all campuses. All staff and faculty received a kick-off postcard via internal mail; bring the coupon to one of the locations named on the bottom of the postcard to receive a free coffee or tea.
“The ongoing success of the Community Campaign is a perfect illustration of the exceptional nature of the Laurier community,” said Max Blouw, president and vice-chancellor of Laurier. “Each year, hundreds of staff, faculty and retirees not only work diligently for Laurier, but also give generously to support this important campaign.”
Last year, 500 donors contributed to the Community Campaign, raising more than $300,000 for various initiatives across Laurier’s campuses. This year, our goal is to raise $350,000 with the support of 550 donors. Every donation enriches the Laurier experience by providing vital enhancements that otherwise would not be possible.
