Reception honours charity’s top supporters

Thursday’s earthquake was nothing compared to the impact of the United Way on the Windsor-Essex community, provost Douglas Kneale told a reception Friday to honour the most generous donors to the charity’s campus fundraising campaign.

“I would like to take your example and multiply it,” Dr. Kneale said.

Eighteen UWindsor faculty, staff, and retirees give at the leadership level, a minimum of $1,200 a year.

Anjana Jacob is the United Way’s relationship manager for leadership giving. She thanked supporters for stepping up to the plate.

“You have made a significant investment in our community to make positive change,” she said.

Campus campaign chair Datta Pillay noted that the University community has topped $100,000 in donations 10 years in a row.
