UNL faculty and staff gave $397,833 toward the 2014 Lincoln-area Combined Campaign for Health and Human Services.
That total was the third largest donation among companies/organizations that participated in the annual community pledge drive. The Combined Campaign 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 top 10 companies that participated in the drive collected $3,374,774. All participating companies and organizations collected more than $7.1 million.
Participants that finished ahead of UNL were the State of Nebraska ($581,608) and Ameritas ($507,452).
Linda Major, assistant to the vice chancellor for student affairs, served as UNL’s 2014 Combined Campaign chair.
To date, UNL employees have contributed more than $6 million to the campaign.
