United Way campaign update: Don't miss out on early bird drawings

Oct 31, 2016

Thank you to everyone who has already made a contribution or pledge to Pacific's 2017 United Way campaign. We are nearly halfway to our goal of $110,000. As of last week, our collective contributions total $53,363. With all your help, we are sure to meet our goal before our campaign closes on Dec. 5. If you have not done so already, please take the time today to make your contribution or pledge to the charity of your choice.

Remember, you can designate your contribution to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization — by either a one-time gift or an annual pledge in any amount. And remember, each contribution, no matter the size, helps us reach our participation goal of 26%.

New Prize Drawing!
I'm also excited to share we now have two early bird drawing opportunities: In addition to the drawing for a 2017-18 A parking permit for early birds who make their donations or pledges by Nov. 1, those who donate by Nov. 15 will be entered into a drawing to receive a one-year membership to the Baun Fitness Center. So don't delay! Winners of both drawings will be announced before the Thanksgiving holiday break.

Also, following the close of our campaign, ALL who have participated in the 2017 campaign will be entered into a drawing for a 2017-18 B parking permit. The winner will be announced before the winter break.

Below is a step-by-step guide for completing the pledge form or for renewing your last year's payroll deduction contribution online through insidePacific. If you have any questions, please contact your unit's campaign ambassador or Cheryl Mack in External Relations at
