About the campus campaign

Each fall Syracuse University hosts a fundraising campaign for the United Way of Central New York. Employees may donate through payroll deduction or make a one-time pledge.  Find your campus representative, download a pledge card, or review the list of agencies that benefit from United Way funding.

Make a pledge

As one of the area's largest employers, Syracuse University plays an important role in the overall success of the United Way's community-wide efforts.  The dollars we contribute fund more than 91 programs in Central New York.

Become a leadership donor

While we have much to be grateful for and proud of as a University community, opportunities and challenges exist in our community now that need our attention.  The United Way is a powerful tool for ensuring philanthropic dollars are allocated and managed responsibly.

Campus events

More than 20 events are held on campus each fall to benefit the United Way, bringing together departments, academic units, staff, and students for the greater good.  Dollars raised contribute significantly to our campaign goal.
