About Our Campaign
Every year the university hosts a workplace giving campaign that educates our employees about issues in the community and empowers us to join together in making a difference.
We do this by pledging contributions to the United Way and other charities.
The funds raised solve serious problems in our communities and impact UCF’s neighbors. The UCF and United Way Campaign runs through the month of October.
UCF has contributed more than $3 million through workplace giving!
Employers offer campaigns like these because they allow employees to consolidate their personal charitable giving through conveniently documented payroll deduction donations. They bring employees together to make a collective difference that amplifies our impact and fosters compassionate action.
2018 Campaign Total: $95,627.91 | Donors: 432
A message from President Whittaker:
UCF is all about collective impact. We know that by working together, we can do much more than we ever could alone. And, when it comes to our community’s greatest challenges, we must be united to solve them.
I am proud that every October, UCF’s faculty and staff join with the Heart of Florida United Way to make a difference in our community. Since 2011, we have raised more than $1 million to support local agencies that drive change, respond to emergencies and provide hope on a daily basis for a better life.
When they say “no amount is too small,” that truly is the case. If everyone reading this gave even a small donation, our combined effort would add up to big impact. I hope that you will join me this year to help meet — and beat — our fundraising goal of $150,000.
Let’s show our community what Knights are made of!
