Information/Refresher Session

for New and Returning Volunteers

Slide3 l.jpg


Community Fund Drive is…

a charitable giving workplace campaign

Conducted every October 1 - 31

Driven by Lead volunteers (like you!) from each college or unit and grassroots volunteers from within your units, with help from a volunteer committee (that’s us!)

Slide4 l.jpg

Workplace campaigns are better for the charities:

Administrative costs are lower than they would be if charities had to solicit individual donations

Payroll deductions provide charities with year-long predictable income making it easier for them to plan services

Slide5 l.jpg

Workplace campaigns are better for employees:

They’re safe! You’re guaranteed that your donation safely reaches any charity you select

They’re easy! You can select from an array of organizations that matter most to you

Our goals

$1.25 million

40% participation

Last year’s participation rate was 28.24% of the University community.


Slide9 l.jpg

  • To achieve 40% we need just a little push:

  • We need 1,794 more people to

  • participate this year. That translates to:

  • 36 more participants per Lead.

  • We can meet our goal!

  • More importantly, we will help many

  • very worthy causes!

  • Every single bit counts!
