Still Time to Contribute to UW’s 2012 United Way Campaign
November 19, 2012 — The University of Wyoming’s 2012 United Way campaign has reached half of its goal of $125,000, and organizers say there’s still plenty of time to contribute.
“Staff and faculty from across campus have already made the decision to donate, some for the first time, and others have increased their contribution for this year,” say Dave Bagley and Kim Zafft, co-chairs of the UW United Way committee. “We are most appreciative. We have just topped 50 percent of the UW goal but are anxious to reach the 100 percent mark.”
UW employees may sign up for payroll deduction or make one-time contributions. To do so, complete the packet that was sent to you, or simply make a donation online at http://unitedwayalbanycounty.org/. If you need a donation packet, stop by the Wyoming Union information desk.
UW’s 2012 United Way campaign committee established the goal of $125,000 in part to mark the 125th anniversaries of both the university and the United Way. In 2011, more than 410 UW employees contributed $122,500.
The United Way of Albany County supports 14 nonprofit agencies. All donations stay in Albany County. The goal for the overall United Way of Albany County campaign this year is $400,125. Co-chairing the countywide effort is Mary E. Burman, dean of UW’s Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing.
