Indiana University Campaign for United Way
Thanks to the generous support of Indiana University faculty, staff, retirees, and students, a hungry senior received a warm meal, a child received a much needed mentor, and a family is getting assistance to make it through a crisis.
These and many other moments are only possible due to caring individuals throughout the community who participate in the annual United Way campaign each fall collectively donating over $1.4 million dollars to support the efforts of United Way and its 25 partner agencies.
Last year, led by key employees and university leadership, the Indiana University campaign raised an impressive $799,655!
The 2015–2016 campaign kicks-off September 16 through November 30, 2015 with a goal of $830,000.
For more than 50 years, the United Way of Monroe County has been working to address the most pressing human service issues for local residents and is thankful for the incredible generosity of Indiana University.
Since the early 1990s, under the leadership of then-President Thomas Ehrlich and his wife Ellen, the IU share of the local United Way's campaign has grown tremendously. IU President Michael McRobbie continues this great tradition today.
