DalUnited Day of Action

For more than 90 years, Dalhousie has partnered with our local United Way in Halifax, raising more than 1.9 million dollars in support of our community. In celebration of our 200th anniversary, and the positive influence of volunteerism throughout the country, we are excited to announce this year’s collaboration with United Way chapters across Canada in our #DalUnited Days of Action!

Join fellow alumni and make a positive difference in your city!

As we travel the country for our Coast to Coast events, we invite you to join us in our effort to support various initiatives contributing to stronger communities across Canada.

United Way chapters have organized meaningful initiatives in each city, such as community gardening in Vancouver, sorting food at the Edmonton Food Bank, supporting a fundraiser alongside the Calgary Stampeders, and much more.
