UND and United Way – Neighborhood Heroes, Unite!

The 2020 University of North Dakota United Way campaign kicked off Oct. 19 and will run through Nov. 13. This year’s theme for the Greater Grand Forks campaign is Neighborhood Heroes, Unite! Please participate in this year’s UND campaign and help fight poverty in our community.

Last year, members of the UND family contributed just over $35,000 to support our local United Way partner agencies. We again ask for your support. With your help, the University of North Dakota will continue to be a strong community partner in 2020.

Contributing made easy

Since many employees are working remotely or on campus for a reduced number of hours, and to limit paper distribution during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are encouraging employees to fill out your United Way Pledge online at https://www.givegfegf.org/pledge, where you may choose to enroll in convenient payroll deduction. Even a small donation given each pay period offers huge impact. Consider this — a donation of $8 per month provides a night of shelter to women and children fleeing violence in their home. For just $5, you can provide a food basket to a family in need. Paper pledge forms are available as needed, and can be requested by emailing Pam Shea at pam.shea@UND.edu.

Thank you,
