Dear JSU Faculty and Staff,
United Way agencies affect so many people's lives in positive ways, through providing health care, through assisting during times of disaster, through providing outlets for young people to grow, achieve, and learn through positive role models, through programs to assist senior citizens and those suffering economic hardships, and through many other important community programs. We encourage you to help continue to make all these things possible through your contribution to United Way in 2012-2013.
The United Way concept is that we should "Live United" through giving, advocating, and volunteering in our community, whether it be our professional community, our residential community, or the global community. As for contributing to the United Way of East Central Alabama campaign itself, the giving part is easy for JSU employees; your pledge can be deducted from your paycheck through payroll deduction. You may also donate through personal checks made out to United Way, and with cash. Even if you pledged money to United Way for 2011-2012, you must fill out a new pledge form and designate an amount for the 2012-2013 campaign, or payroll will not continue to deduct your donation.
If you wish, you may also indicate on the form whether you want your donation to benefit a particular agency or program such as Jacksonville Meals on Wheels, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, or the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, and we can assure you that your money will go to the agency or program you designate. A list of agencies and programs was part of the information you received at the annual faculty/staff meeting. You may choose not to earmark your donation, in which case the Allocations Panels will assign monies based on agency requests and program needs (programs include Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, Success by Six, and 2-1-1).. Any amount you can afford to give will be appreciated and well used.Please return faculty pledges to Gloria Horton at 115 Stone Center and staff forms to Allison Ortiz at 110 Bibb Graves by November 1. If you have any questions or if you need another pledge form, call Gloria at ext. 5409.
Thank You for being loyal supporters of what United Way stands for! Your generosity over the past years has made JSU employees among the top donors to United Way of East Central Alabama.
Your Jacksonville State University United Way Campaign Coordinators
