United Way Campaign update

With only three weeks left in the 2018 campaign, there is still a ways to go to meet our $125,000 goal
Nov 7, 2017

A big thank you to the 82 faculty, staff, students and alumni who have pledged $23,643 so far in our 2018 United Way Employee Campaign. It's a good start toward reaching the goal of $125,000. We would like to encourage the rest of our Pacific community to consider making a donation or annual pledge to the charity of your choice through United Way. By doing so during this campaign, we come together to serve our campus communities. You can designate your gift through United Way San Joaquin, Bay Area United Way or United Way Sacramento.

Please take the time today to consider a gift.

How to give
Remember, this year, donations can be made via your cell phone or computer. For details on how to contribute via mobile or online, simply visit the online giving site or text "tigers" to the number 40403 to make your donation. Also, for those who prefer it, paper forms also are available through your department's or unit's United Way Ambassador or Campus Director. Pacific students can give through the online giving platform using their debit or credit cards. They can text the keyword "tigers" to the number 40403 to gain access to the online pledge form.

Hear from Pacific employee Shim Lacy about how easy it is to participate.

United Way is an important part of our community outreach efforts for all three campuses. Please consider making a pledge for the 2018 Campaign. Remember you can designate your contribution to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
