Student Affairs 2018 United Way Campaign

Help us reach our goal of $25,000 in donations!

The Division of Student Affairs is proudly participating in this year’s United Way campaign for Story county. This year we are excited about coordinating our efforts and we hope you can join us!

Let’s continue the momentum in 2018!

  • $1 a week ($52) could provide 1 full day of Community-based Day Hab for an individual that attend with a small group of peers with Friendship Ark Homes
  • $.50 a day ($182.50) covers one day of all day summer club for 9 members at Boys and Girls Club of Story County
  • $1 a day ($365) affords a family of four to stay in our transitional housing program for 1 week at Emergency Residence Project. This program provides the family a chance to have some longer stability and one on one help to get back on their feet.

The United Way of Story County provides assistance in three areas: Education, Income, and Health.

There are multiple ways that staff can be involved. Please contact your department representatives and continue to check this page for updates.

The campaign runs Sept. 10 – Oct. 12.


United Way Pledge Card

Please return donation packet whether you choose to donate or not.

You are welcome to donate through the United Way packet that you received through campus mail. Packets are due Oct. 12. You can donate through an enclosed cash/check, payroll deduction, or credit card. Please review your pledge card for details.

As a reminder, participation is simply returning the pledge form.  If you would like to donate through payroll deduction or by including a one-time donation, that’s even better!  

We’re shooting for an all-time student affairs record this year.

We thank you in advance for your help!
