United Way

Community engagement and service to the public good are core components of McMaster’s culture. In fact, Community Engagement is one of the four pillars of the Forward with Integrity strategy. The McMaster United Way Campaign gives employees the opportunity to become more engaged in the local community through various fundraising initiatives.

The theme for the 2019-2020 Campaign is Many Hands Make Light Work. In addition to annual programming such as the Pull4Mac Bus Pull and Online Auction, the United Way Committee is encouraging departments to plan and execute their own fundraisers to drive community engagement while raising funds for an incredible not-for-profit organization.Your support will give children a nutritious meal through school breakfast programs, help those living with illness access the support they need, and provide community members with the opportunity to bridge the gap between surviving and thriving.
