Campaign for our Community Spotlight

Individuals feel good when they support philanthropic causes.  It increases work productivity, instills a sense of community in the workplace and assists non-profits to achieving their goals. We also support causes where there is a connection to something personal in our lives. The University of Utah’s 2018 Campaign for our Community is underway, and we are excited to participate in this year’s campaign.

We urge each member of the University faculty and staff to pledge your support through payroll deduction. The ease of giving allows you to:

  1. Support multiple non-profit organizations of your choice
  2. Easily make contribution changes as needed
  3. Enjoy the tax benefits of support to charitable causes

Our combined federations, Community Shares, Community Health, and United Way wish to thank all of our past donors and welcome new employees who are looking to help support the priceless work of our non-profit charities that strengthen our community and make living and working in Utah the best in the nation!

Here’s to a continued successful 2018 Campaign Season. Click here for more information about donations and charities.
