SUBJECT: Pitt-United Way Campaign
I am writing to ask you to join me in supporting the 2013 Pitt-United Way Campaign. This annual campaign provides each of us with the special opportunity to make an investment in our community, to give hope to our fellow citizens, and to enhance the overall quality of life for all of us.
For three consecutive years, the generosity of the Pitt community has helped us to break our United Way giving records. Last year, the Pitt-United Way campaign raised more than $626,000 – our most successful campaign to date. However, the real success is in how the United Way used those dollars. When combined with the donations of other members of our community, the United Way and its partner agencies were able to fund a number of important initiatives that had a significant impact on our community, including:
The United Way offers all of us the opportunity to be a hero to a neighbor in need. We hope that is another record breaking year in terms of dollars raised and the commitment of our entire Pitt community. If each person who makes a donation convinces a colleague to make a gift this year, we would not only meet our campaign goal, but significantly impact the lives of those most vulnerable members of our community.
Please join me and your University colleagues in supporting the good work done by the United Way. On behalf of the University and everyone who will benefit from the United Way’s programs, thank you for your kindness and generosity.
