Employee donations

As a Dalhousie University employee you can make a donation through convenient payroll deductions, single or multiple cash, cheque or credit card donations, or a perpetual pledge. No contribution is too small; every donation makes a difference. 

Make a donation to Dalhousie’s United Way campaign:

  • PAPER: Contact your employee campaign coordinator to obtain a paper pledge form or print your own. Completed forms can be returned by interoffice mail to Sam Sun (Halifax campuses), or Marilyn Roberts (Agricultural Campus).
  • ONLINE: Visit the United Way @work donation website via the unique URL sent directly to your Dalhousie email. (Please note: this option is only available to employees on the Halifax campuses).

As a service to donors, the United Way will accept designations. What does that mean? As a donor, you can specify exactly where you would like your contribution to go. This includes the United Way Community Fund and funded agencies, as well as all Canadian registered charities. To designate your contribution, please select this option on the online pledge form or complete the back of your paper pledge form.

If you are a perpetual donor who wishes to make a change to your donation, please contact Roxanne at the United Way: rmillington@unitedwayhalifax.ca (902)461-3072.    

If you wish for your perpetual donation to stay the same, you don't have to do anything. Thank you for continued support.
