United Way: Live United

Dear Staff and Faculty,

At Lawrence University we are committed to supporting our community through the work we do and the resources we share.

We know these times are difficult and challenging for everyone, especially now.  That is why I am asking you to take part in this year’s United Way Fox Cities employee giving campaign LIVE UNITED, but also understand if you are unable to do so.

United Way Fox Cities is grateful to the many Lawrence University employees who have generously contributed in the past. Your generosity has made a real and lasting difference to individuals and families right here in our own local community. They support basic needs to those who need them most.

Please watch the 2-minute campaign video. It is sure to leave you feeling good about the impact we can make off-campus.

If you didn’t give last year and give $26 this year ($1/per paycheck) you will be entered into a drawing for a Chevy Trailblazer! Donors who gave last year need to increase their total gift by $1 to qualify. Gifts of any size are always welcome.

Please email Stacy Mara with the amount you would like to donate per payroll period by Dec. 1. New pledges will begin Dec. 11 and run for 26 payrolls. You may also campus mail a check made out to United Way to Stacy Mara in Wilson House.

If you can, I invite you to join me in supporting United Way Fox Cities to inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. As we give, advocate, or volunteer, we’ll increase our own sense of community.

Thank you for considering this opportunity as a way to support our local community and to LIVE UNITED.
