A message from the 2022 Campaign Co-Chairs

As co-chairs for the 2022 U-M United Way, we want to inspire everyone in the university community to make a pledge to the campaign, no matter the amount. Please join us in supporting the critical work United Way of Washtenaw County is responsible for across our entire community. Their tireless efforts to ensure opportunity to all through their support of programs and services to house, feed, educate families throughout our community; and their steadfast support of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to deconstruct systemic racism and institutional bias been a resounding success. #UnitedWeThrive

Why pledge to the U-M United Way campaign? There are many reasons including the money raised in Washtenaw County stays in our community. Making a pledge is simple and easy through the Pledge system or using a one-page pledge form. You can give a smaller amount each month rather than all at once through payroll deduction or credit card – making it budget friendly and you can take great comfort and satisfaction in knowing you have made a difference in someone’s life.

We hope you will join us in supporting the 2022 U-M United Way with your pledge today!
