RBC Employees And Retirees Across Canada Raise More Than $16.4 Million For United Way

TORONTO, Feb. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - RBC announced today that charitable contributions by employees and retirees from across Canada raised more than $12.5 million in support of its 2012 RBC Employees United Way campaign, exceeding funds raised last year by over $650,000. Combined with RBC's corporate donations across the country of more than $3.9 million, this year's campaign generated a total of more than $16.4 million to support United Way campaigns and local charities across Canada.

"I'm tremendously proud of the passion for helping others once again shown by RBC employees and retirees," said Gordon M. Nixon, president and CEO, RBC. "Their efforts and contributions will have a direct impact on the lives of a great many people in our communities across the country."

RBC is one of the top corporate supporters of the United Way 2012 Campaign. Over 21,000 employees donated to the cause, through direct giving and fundraising events organized by RBC employees and retirees. In addition, more than 425 employees and retirees participated in community projects through United Way Days of Caring in 2012.

The campaign is the largest workplace charitable campaign in Canada and benefits United Way campaigns across Canada, health partners and more than 80,000 registered charities.
