EMU United Way Campaign 2021

To the Eastern Michigan University community:

Please join me in supporting our local Washtenaw United Way as part of the 2021 EMU United Way Workplace Campaign! 

EMU is proud of our lengthy partnership with the Washtenaw United Way. Each year, we have the opportunity to create positive change in our community! Our virtual fundraising campaign will help the United Way raise funds that are directly invested in our community.

You may click here to donate to the Washtenaw United Way using credit card, check, or payroll deduction (available for most employees). 

The 2021 Virtual Campaign

As part of this year’s virtual fundraising campaign, we will explore different issues in our community including Equity, COVID-19, Health, and Education. You will receive a message each day this week that explores these important issues and provides you with options to engage by giving, advocating, volunteering, and exploring.

For 100 years, United Way of Washtenaw County has been connecting people, resources, and organizations together to create a thriving community for everyone.  They bring solutions to our County’s most pressing social challenges, which they do with the support of community members like you. By supporting our local United Way, you are supporting local students, families, and EMU university staff and faculty. Learn more about EMU’s work with United Way, or visit the Washtenaw United Way website to learn how United Way is working in our community and what your dollars at work do. 

As we are unable to have a kick-off event in person, we created a video to share with you details on the impact of the United Way on our community, please view and share!

Watch the EMU Video for this year’s campaign. 

Thank you for standing with me in support of our community!!
