UW Employees Help United Way Reach Campaign Goal

More than 410 University of Wyoming employees contributed $122,500 in support of Albany County’s 14 United Way agencies. The funding is part of the $400,000 total raised in the capital campaign for United Way in Albany County.

UW had set a goal of raising $115,000, but surpassed that goal by seven percent as many employees donated for the first time or increased contributions for this year. Employees had the opportunity to utilize payroll deduction and those who contributed at least $50 were put into a drawing for special prizes.

Nancy and Steve Stutzman, this year’s campaign leaders, said, “We are extremely grateful to UW employees for their generosity and to Tom and Jacque Buchanan for helping us have a successful United Way campaign on campus.”

The network of United Way agencies aid local families, the elderly and many others in need, including students. The 14 agencies also provide internship and other learning experiences for students and professional development opportunities for faculty.

UW’s campaign leaders are Nicole Ballenger, associate provost; Kathy Burman, Wyoming Humanities Council; Jo Chytka, Center for Advising and Career Services director; Ollie Walter, College of Arts and Sciences dean; and Kim Zafft; Wyoming Union associate director.
