Dear "Name";

 

The 2017 U-M United Way Campaign is underway!

 

Last year the campaign raised more than $1.33 million dollars that is helping people every day. This year I hope that we can again do our part and help the campaign to reach its goal of $1.55 million dollars.

 

Please take a minute to visit the U-M United Way website at uway.umich.edu where you will find a message from the co-chairs, answers to frequently asked questions, instructions for making an ePledge or using a pledge form, plus other information.

 

A few important things to note:

 

  • The dates for the campaign are October 1 –December 31, 2017.

 

  • Making a pledge is easy using ePledge system on Wolverine Access/faculty staff tab/yellow highlighted area. Once logged in using your password/login, you may choose payroll deduction, check, credit card or bank transfer.

 

  • Pledging through the campaign allows you to contribute a little each month that adds up to make a big difference. If you have any questions throughout the campaign, please let me know. I encourage each of you to participate, all pledges no matter the size will make a difference.

 

Sincerely,

Dear "Name";

 

I am writing to ask you to join me in making a gift to our U-M United Way campaign. As you know, the University of Michigan is committed to giving back to our community. U-M partners with United Way because it enables us to make a difference and we know that our support is reaching those who need it most and creating the greatest impact right here in our community.

 

When you make a gift to U-M United Way, you help to change lives and strengthen communities – one child, one adult and one family at a time, such as...

 

  • An at-risk child who has the chance to attend a high-quality preschool preparing them for success in school and in life

 

  • Parents who receive career and budget training to better provide for their family

 

  • An older adult who can remain at home with access to health care services;

 

  • A single mom in an abusive relationship who is offered safety, shelter, and a fresh start.

 

Last year, we raised $1.33 million during our U-M United Way campaign. I am proud of what we accomplished in providing opportunities to so many of our neighbors in need. I hope you will join me in making a gift to this year’s campaign. Together, we can make a difference and highlight U-M’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work.

 

Making a pledge is easy using ePledge system on Wolverine Access/faculty staff tab/yellow highlighted area. Once logged in using your password/login, you may choose payroll deduction, check, credit card or bank transfer.

 

Thank you and Go Blue!
