The United Way of London and Middlesex has received its largest donation ever thanks to Western University.

The university announced Wednesday it raised $785, 386 through its 2013 campus-wide fundraising campaign.

This is the largest donation to date for the local United Way.

“Western’s engagement in the community is central to our mission as a university,” said Western President Amit Chalkma in a statement.

“The United Way supports our community with the widest spectrum of the services for those most in need and Western is proud to support their vital work in our region.”

The previous record was set by Western’s 2012 campaign, where they raised $746,101.
