2015 Charitable Giving Fund Drive
From Mark Neuzil, Interim Vice President for Mission
Dear UST Faculty and Staff,
Each year University of St. Thomas faculty and staff are invited to contribute to the needs of people in the greater Twin Cities metropolitan area through our Charitable Giving Fund Drive. Through it we have the opportunity to provide financial support to one of seven federations and the hundreds of organizations that they represent, or to a charity of your choosing. The seven federations that are part of our drive are:
Community Health Charities Open Your Heart to the Hungry & Homeless
Community Shares of Minnesota Peacemaker Minnesota
Greater Twin Cities United Way United Negro College Fund
Minnesota Environmental Fund
Although we accept donations at any time during the year, the "official" 2015 Charitable Giving Fund Drive runs from Nov. 3-14, 2014. Information about each of the federations, the organizations they support, and a pledge form can be accessed from this website. Participation in the drive is voluntary.
A regular feature of the Fund Drive is the random drawing at its conclusion. To spice it up this year, in addition to the ever-popular lunch with the President, a one-year parking permit, and gift cards, our drawing features a selection of hand-crafted goods donated by artisans within our St. Thomas community. A complete list of items and donors can be accessed on this website. Anyone completing and returning a pledge form is eligible for the drawing. A display of items donated for the drawing will be available outside The View on Tuesday, November 4. Staff from the Office for Mission will be available to answer your questions.
To pledge, print a copy of the pledge form, complete it, and return it to the Office for Mission (AQU 121) by 4:30 p.m. Nov. 14. Please consider those less fortunate than we and give what you can. The need remains great. Thank you for your generosity and may God bless you.
