United Way Campaign approaches goal

November 13, 2017

With more than $104,000 in one-time gifts and pledges, Clemson’s United Way campaign is making headway toward its $120,000 goal. The generosity of Clemson’s faculty and staff resulted in successful campaigns in past years. Organizers hope that this year is no different.

Although the campaign officially wraps-up on Nov. 17, faculty and staff can still pledge their support by completing a United Way pledge form,  and emailing the completed form to, or fax to 656-4235, or mail to United Way Campaign, 103 Sikes Hall, Clemson University, Clemson, SC 29634-5016.

Participants can select whether they want their contributions made via payroll deduction or through a one-time gift to United Way. Participants who currently donate by payroll deduction and want to continue at that level do not need to complete a pledge form. However, if faculty and staff who currently donate through payroll deduction would like to increase their contribution, they should complete a new pledge form.

Campaign chair Dr. Cheryl Dye credited Clemson’s United Way team captains with communication, support and promotion in their respective areas.

“Our team captains have been wonderful,” Dye said. “I want to personally thank our team captains for rallying their colleagues behind this important campaign. They are the reason our campaign was able to secure over $119,000 in gifts and pledges.”

Athletics – Kyle Young,  Roberta Balliett

Dye, who directs the university’s Institute for Engaged Aging, thinks that the Clemson United Way campaign had a great year.

“It’s a fantastic time to be at Clemson, with the success of our academic and athletic programs putting us in the national spotlight,” Dye said. “United Way campaign donations stay local, helping the communities where Clemson employees live. Let’s take the opportunity to enable our neighbors to also enjoy success through our donations to United Way.”
