One of Many: Making a Difference With the United Way (With Video)
Syracuse University is a longtime supporter of the United Way of Central New York. Please consider uniting with your colleagues and making a contribution to sustain the long-standing mission of the United Way. The United Way supports 72 specially funded programs and projects by 33 nonprofit partners serving our community. Your support offers hope to those in our community who need it most.
This year’s campaign runs through Dec. 15. During this time, we encourage each University employee to consider making a voluntary one-time gift as your pledge. There is also an option to give through payroll deductions over the coming year. For those who prefer, a paper pledge card may be obtained by contacting our campaign coordinator, Jake Losowski at email@example.com or 315.443.4137.
If you have a favorite nonprofit organization that is not part of the United Way’s Community Program Fund, please be sure that they follow this specific criteria in order for them to receive the funds from the United Way:
- Eligible organizations must be 501(c)3 health and human service agencies operating in New York state or other United Way chapters.
- For each designation outside of the standard United Way funded programs, there is a $100 or 15% administrative fee, whichever is less.
- The gift must be a minimum of $50 per agency, with a maximum of four designations.
The United Way of Central New York will also be collecting donations at the Syracuse University men’s basketball game on Tuesday, Nov. 14, as a part of the overall University Giving Campaign for the United Way.
