United Way Campaign Kicks Off

The United Way campaign continues through Nov. 11.

ISU was the No. 1 donor in total 'employee only' contributions in 2009, with $50,781 in donations. Our goal for 2010 is $60,000.

One hundred percent of contribution dollars goes directly to help those in need. The United Way of Southeastern Idaho's administrative costs are covered by corporate sponsors. UWSEI supports more than 40 non-profit organizations in Southeast Idaho, including organizations that provide education, health options and financial stability to those in need.

ISU offers faculty and staff the convenience of giving through payroll deduction.

Visit United Way to see where as little as $1 per pay period ($26) or more can help others.

Take a look at Funded Programs to see what community programs the United Way funds with your contributions.

ISU will be having a Bengal Derby this year with a competition among the Key Administrators.

Individuals will have a variety of ways to earn chances in a Progressive Drawing.
