Healthy Workplace funding

Host an event in support of the UBC Okanagan United Way Campaign. PitStops or other events is a great way to bring together our campus community and support our broader community through the United Way BC.

Thanks to funding from Healthy Workplace Funding we can help support departments hosting United Way events. With $1000 total, apply to the UBCO United Way Events Fund for up to $300 towards your event or initiative. These funds will be awarded to events and initiatives that support and fundraise for the United Way BC and support social connections.
