2016 United Way Campaign President’s Message

UCF Knights have a proud tradition of generosity. Each year at this time, our faculty, staff, and students join with the Heart of Florida United Way to give back to our community. Through donations, fundraisers, or volunteering, our employees and students benefit those who need help the most.

In the past five years, you have helped raise $743,697 for United Way. This money supports the local agencies that drive change, respond to emergencies, and provide hope to those in our community on a daily basis. This year, please join me in reaching our fundraising goal of $200,000. Even small donations can have a big impact for someone in need, and the United Way offers many options for directing your contributions. I invite you to find a cause that aligns with your values, experiences, or goals.

Let’s determine to make a difference. Give what you can today to help make Central Florida a better place for all of us.

Cordially yours,

John C. Hitt

President, University of Central Florida


Campaign Advocates in departments across our campus make this effort successful.  Advocates assist by providing information within their departments and ensuring every employee can make an informed decision about whether or not to give.

There are also leadership opportunities for those interested in serving on or chairing university level committees such as marketing or events.
