Thank you to all those who rallied together last year to donate to the TRUly United Campaign. We are reaching out to TRU staff and faculty once again to support students and deserving members of our wider community through TRUly United 2020, which runs Oct. 26 to Nov. 20. Help us reach our goal of 50 percent employee participation!
Giving made easy
We've made it easy for you to give by automatically deducting your donation from your pay. Simply complete the pledge form online, and join the 600 employees currently contributing to the TRU Foundation and United Way through payroll deduction and payroll lottery. It’s easy and tax deductible.
Sign up today to donate $5 or more per pay period or make a one-time contribution.
The need is there and it is great. Whether they are students struggling to choose between books or food, or families choosing shoes over healthy meals, people in Kamloops and the surrounding regions need our help. Giving to the TRUly United Campaign provides some of the financial support they desperately need.
At TRU, we strive to make post-secondary education accessible to anyone regardless of background or financial means. Specifically, money you donate to the TRUly United campaign will go towards TRU Student scholarships, awards and bursaries. While 1,059 students have received Foundation financial awards, there is not enough funding to meet the needs of the hundreds of students who are eligible and in need. Our vision is that every student who needs financing, gets it. Your donations will help us actualize this vision!
United Way Community Funds are critical to the overall health and strength of our communities. When students arrive at TRU they have already had a wide breadth of life experiences; some more advantaged than others. Your contribution to the Community Funds helps to level the playing field of those experiences by ensuring that vulnerable individuals have access to the wrap-around social supports that allow them to arrive at post-secondary set up for success because the playing field has been leveled.
Our vision is to provide opportunities for a better life for everyone.
Giving made fun
Give and win. Watch for prize opportunities throughout the campaign. If you increase your donation or sign up as a new donor, you will be entered into a paid day off.
TRU community members are invited to serve on the TRUly United Committee — a cross-functional committee that coordinates TRU's efforts to raise funds for the United Way campaign and for the Foundation in support of student scholarships and bursaries. For more information on the impact you can make by joining this committee, contact Diana Major, Director of Development - Annual Giving.
On behalf of our students and our community, thank you for your generosity. Together we can change lives and make a difference in our community.
