Purdue United Way Campaign to end next week, still needs pledges to make goal
Purdue’s 2021 United Way campaign needs more support to help reach its goal of $725,000. As of Tuesday (Nov. 9), the campaign was at $480,328.
With just over a week left in the campaign, Megan Eberly, director of Purdue United Way, would like to encourage Purdue employees who have not yet pledged toward the campaign to do so before the campaign ends on Nov. 17. Pledges are not automatically renewed from year to year, so employees need to log on to the Purdue United Way website to renew their pledge for this year.
Steve Abel, associate provost for engagement, is this year’s campaign chair. Linda Mason, dean of the Graduate School, is the vice chair.
The ePledge online pledge system continues this year. Donors can make an unrestricted gift to the United Way of Greater Lafayette or can choose a specific UWGL agency. Gifts can be made through payroll deduction or as a one-time donation. For credit card transactions, the United Way of Greater Lafayette contracts with CyberSource, a trusted name in e-commerce meeting industry security standards.
If employees would prefer a paper pledge card, contact Eberly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 317-695-5740.
The Purdue United Way campaign will wrap up at the United Way of Great Lafayette’s campaign victory celebration Nov. 18 at the West Lafayette Golf and Country Club, and members of the campus community are invited to attend the celebration.
A link to donate and more information about the Purdue United Way Campaign can be found on the Purdue United Way website. Questions about the campaign can be directed to Megan Eberly, Purdue’s United Way director, at email@example.com.
