... and our fundraising United Way campaign is pulling ahead! As of this morning, the Ithaca College United Way fundraising campaign received another $9,561 in pledges and cash/check payments, making our total campus donations received to date $19,121. That means we have already achieved 29% of our campus fundraising goal! And those results were from getting back pledge cards from only 67 donors - 8 of them first-timers - representing just 4% of our campus employees. The great news is that with so many good folks in our campus community increasing their pledge by even a little bit for this year or donating for the first time, we are up 15% over the same giving rate last year. Way to go, Team IC!
Is YOUR pledge card in the campus mail yet? Everyone on campus should have received their pledge card by now - if you didn't get one for some reason, please contact Marian Brown (274-3787) to request a form. Imagine what we could accomplish if the other 96% of our campus community gave even a little SOMETHING... Together, let's completely blow through our campus fundraising goal of $65,000 and set a new record for giving this year!
As of last Friday, United Way of Tompkins County had received donations totaling $748,138, which is 34.72% of their $2,155,000 goal. Let's do OUR part here at Ithaca College to help the United Way reach its goal this year.
Just a friendly reminder: please vote tomorrow! Voting is an important responsibility of citizenship, as is supporting your neighbors and community members in need.
