We are in the final weeks of the United Way Campaign and Ithaca College is at the 75% mark toward our goal of raising $60,000. Also, thanks to participation by many new contributors and generous increases in commitment from prior donors we are also very close to meeting the one-to-one match up to $5,000. We have two weeks to bring our campaign to successful conclusion and now is the time for action. Payroll deduction makes it really simple to have a big impact over the course of the year as even a gift of $1, $5, or up to $20 per paycheck can really add up and help those in need in our community.  As a reminder, 100% of your gift to the United Way of Tompkins County and its member organizations will go to support needed services and not to administrative support of the local or national United Way.
