UNL’s Combined Campaign, “Big Impact — Go Big, Give Big,” finishes Nov. 1. Faculty and staff are encouraged to turn in pledge forms by the deadline.
The Combined Campaign is an annual community pledge drive that benefits three federations — Community Health Charities of Nebraska, Community Services Fund and United Way of Lincoln and Lancaster County. The three federations represent more than 110 local agencies that assist members of the community.
“The UNL Combined Campaign is an opportunity to demonstrate a solid sense of commitment to our community,” Chancellor Harvey Perlman said. “Your gift is important to send a unified message of support from the entire university to the community as a whole.”
Combined Campaign pledge materials have been delivered to UNL employees around Oct. 22. Pledges can be made online or by turning in pledge cards. Employees may give to any specific agency or to the three general funds. A variety of giving options are offered.
Shawn Eichorst, director of athletics, is the 2014 UNL Combined Campaign Chair.
“Every year we have a shared opportunity and responsibility to make Nebraska and the world a better place through the UNL Combined Campaign,” Eichorst said. “The Combined Campaign not only helps those who need assistance but also supports the very foundations of the local organizations that serve our community.”
UNL’s goal is to raise $425,000. Eichorst hopes 100 percent of UNL faculty and staff participate in the campaign.
To date, UNL employees have contributed more than $6 million to the campaign.
