Support your community though United Way with Northwest Ohio Community Shares campaign

The 2016 United Way with Northwest Ohio Community Shares campaign is underway, an opportunity for faculty, staff and retirees to again show their longstanding support for meeting needs from emergency services to health care to daycare for families plus a host of other ways to improve lives in the region. Many University community members are among those who utilize United Way services each year.

“This year’s United Way campaign focuses on some of the most pressing issues within our community, including school readiness and homelessness,” said Dean of Students Jodi Webb, 2016 United Way Committee chair. “However, when you pledge your support, you have the opportunity to direct your gift to a wide range of agencies in our area.”

Donors may contribute to any of the agencies funded by United Way or Northwest Ohio Community Shares, and may also write in any local health or human service nonprofit agency that does not appear on the list. Pledges may be made online or by campus mail to the campaign at 220 McFall Center. Checks, credit cards and payroll deduction can all be used to contribute.

“BGSU faculty, staff and retirees have always shown they are willing to support the United Way and their outreach in northwest Ohio. We hope to increase our percentage of overall participation this year and encourage your involvement with this year’s campaign,” Webb said.
