UIndy comes through for United Way

Once again, the faculty and staff of UIndy have shown their generosity and community spirit in a big way, setting new campus records in this year’s workplace giving campaign for United Way of Central Indiana.

The $55,000 goal set this fall was easily eclipsed by an intake of nearly $68,000, President Beverley Pitts announced today, an increase of almost 23 percent from last year. The number of UIndy donors climbed to 384 this year, representing a participation rate of 63 percent.

This year’s United Way campaign was chaired by Sue Willey, director of athletics, and Lela Mixon, associate director of career services.
