Pacific 2018 United Way Campaign final totals

Dec 11, 2017

The 2018 United Way campaign at University of the Pacific's three campuses has concluded, and a big thank you goes out to the 222 faculty, staff, alumni and students who donated.

A total of $61,892.08 was pledged to United Way in Stockton, Sacramento and San Francisco. While this was well short of the campaign goals, the pledges will go a long way in helping many agencies which serve our communities.

Thank you to Pacific alumna Amy Ferrell of United Way of San Joaquin County for all her hard work and coordination. Also, a shout out to Cindy Lee in the President's Office for her diligent efforts.

We certainly want to enhance the future Pacific commitment to United Way. If you have suggestions for improvements for next year's campaign, please contact Campaign Chair Stacy McAfee ( or Community Relations Director Mike Klocke ( with suggestions.
