United Way Campaign Kicks Off Monday
The University of Hartford will kick off its annual United Way campaign on Monday, Oct. 1. This year's fundraising goal is $25,000.
Faculty and staff can choose to make donations electronically or with paper pledge forms. In the next few days, each employee will be receiving an email from United Way with a personalized link for making an online donation. Each employee also will be receiving a packet with paper pledge forms and information from the campaign volunteer assigned to their department.
The campaign will continue through Nov. 30.
"As it is every year, the needs of our communities continue to be great. I urge each of us to do what we can to support our community," President Walter Harrison wrote in a letter that will accompany the United Way pledge packets.
Everyone who participates in this year's United Way campaign will be entered into a drawing for prizes, including a $25 gift card to the Bookstore and gift certificates for lunch at the 1877 Club. In addition, anyone who makes a donation of $75 or more will be entered into a drawing for a Lenovo IdeaPad laptop computer and printer donated by the Purchasing Department.
And this year, there is an added incentive. Anyone who makes a donation, regardless of amount, will be entered into a drawing for the chance to throw a pie in President Harrison's face! Other senior administrators have volunteered to take a pie to the face as well.
If you don't know the name of your campaign volunteer, and you have any questions, please call the President's Office at ext. 4417 or ext. 4418.
