Purdue United Way Campaign still needs pledges to make goal

Purdue’s 2022 United Way campaign still needs more support to reach its goal of $725,000. As of Tuesday (Nov. 8), $515,319 had been raised, or 71% of the goal. The campaign ends on Nov. 16.

With just over a week left, Megan Eberly, Purdue United Way director, encourages Purdue employees who have not yet pledged to do so before the campaign wraps up. 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. 

“We want to thank everyone that has helped move this campaign in a forward direction this year after a challenging couple of years due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Eberly says. “One thing we continue to learn is that the needs are greater than ever post-COVID, and that is why we are so grateful to everyone who has donated, volunteered and helped support the Purdue 2022 United Way campaign. Purdue continues to do what Boilermakers have always done, and that is help our community. The work that is being done with so many departments and colleges within the Purdue community is really inspiring to watch as it supports so much of the work that United Way does.” 

Linda Mason, dean of the Graduate School, is this year’s campaign chair, and Beth McNeil, dean of Libraries and School of Information Studies, is the vice chair.

The Purdue United Way campaign will wrap up at the United Way of Greater Lafayette’s campaign victory celebration Nov. 17 at The Outpost in Lafayette, 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 Eberly at
