Pacific Three-city United Way Campaign continues momentum

Oct 30, 2017

University of the Pacific's three-campus United Way campaign is picking up momentum and will continue for another month, ending Nov. 28.

The combined goals for the Pacific campaign for the San Joaquin, Sacramento and the Bay Area United Way are $125,000 in total university giving and 500 campaign participants. So far, 60 Pacific participants have pledged a total of $17,568.

The first drawing for incentive prizes for those who give to the campaign began this week. Congratulations to Chadi El Kari, assistant professor in the School of Engineering and Computer Science, who is the winner of a Baun Fitness Center membership for the 2018-2019 school year.

How to give
Remember, this year, donations will be made via your cell phone or computer. For details on how to contribute via mobile or online, view the attached flier. Pacific students can give through the online giving platform using their debit or credit cards. They can text the keyword "tigers" to the number 40403 to gain access to the online pledge form. The campaign will continue through Nov. 28.
