NYU’s Annual Combined Campaign Kicks-Off to Raise Money for the United Way of NYC and the NYU Community Fund

November 25, 2008

Now in its 26th year, the NYU Combined Campaign kicks off this November in an effort to raise financial support from full-time employees for the NYU Community Fund and the United Way of NYC.

NYU employees can help support the NYU Combined Campaign by making a tax-deductible contribution simply by visiting www.nyu.edu/community.fund. Employees can choose to lend their support to the NYU Community Fund, the United Way of NYC or both, and can elect to make a pledge via payroll deduction, or to make a one-time pledge with a personal check or credit card.

According to Bill Pfeiffer, the Director of the Combined Campaign, “in this difficult economy, many nonprofit organizations are facing tough challenges as they cope with rising human needs. Even small donations can help to ensure that they will continue to provide critical services to our most vulnerable neighbors. Now more than ever, our continued support of this important tradition at the university is crucial.”

During the 2007-2008 fundraising year, NYU employees made donations totaling $125,000 to the NYU Community Fund to support 85 community-based organizations in Lower Manhattan. In addition, employee contributions to the United Way totaled over $29,000. Since the Combined Campaign began 26 years ago, members of the faculty, administrative and clerical staff of NYU have raised and distributed over $2,100,000.

The organizations that are supported by the Campaign are dedicated to such purposes as: encouraging at-risk young people to stay in school, providing services for the elderly, feeding the hungry, supporting projects for the visually impaired, persons with HIV/AIDS, cancer, heart disease and other health problems, and sustaining literacy, tutorial and tenants rights programs.

The NYU Combined Campaign ends January 16, 2009.
