The University of Wyoming’s 2017 United Way campaign will begin Monday, Oct. 9, with a campus campaign kickoff from 11 a.m.-noon in the Wyoming Union’s Yellowstone Ballroom.
The entire campus community is invited to attend the event, which will feature refreshments and information about the United Way of Albany County -- and the 16 nonprofit agencies it supports. Representatives of those agencies will be on hand to provide information about the services they provide.
In addition, scheduled to speak are UW President Laurie Nichols and Paul Heimer, United Way of Albany County executive director. Dave Bagley, chemical engineering professor, and Frosty Selmer, deputy director of utilities management, are co-chairs of the 2017 UW campaign.
UW employees may donate to the United Way through payroll deduction or one-time contributions. They will receive donation information via campus mail. This year, gift certificates will be inserted in 10 of the mailers across campus as an incentive to open them and read about how to donate to the United Way.
