EMU & United Way of Washtenaw County 2018 Workplace Campaign
March 2018-March 2019
Why does EMU participate in United Way of Washtenaw County’s annual campaign?
- EMU has participated in the United Way Workplace Campaign for years. We are not unlike WCC, University of Michigan, the County government and businesses large and small who host donation and pledge campaigns for the United Way of Washtenaw County.
- In Washtenaw County, the United Way works alongside the County government, St. Joe's, and the AAACF, a private foundation to coordinate funding and thus leverage local dollars to ensure that our most vulnerable and needy members of the community are being served and supported.
- Many of the organizations which the United Way supports directly support our EMU community including Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels, Child Care Network, Ozone House and Hope Clinic. Thus, there is very little distance between the communities and people which United Way supports and serves and our own EMU community.
The U in United Way is indeed...us, EMU.
Throughout the campaign we will highlight EMU students and staff who have been impacted by the United Way.
Our campaign goal:
For the 2018 EMU Workplace Campaign, The 'U' in United Way, our campaign goal is 50% staff participation. Any level. Any amount.
Most areas and departments of the universities have a Unit Rep who can locate information on the campaign including resources and pledge materials. If not, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about your unit representation.
To pledge we encourage you to use the e-pledge system. Most employee classes can select payroll deduction.
