TeamUM’s United Way Campaign Surpasses $1 Million Again

UM News

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (February 12, 2015) – Demonstrating the power of philanthropy, faculty and staff contributed their time, talent, and treasure to propel the University through one of its most successful United Way campaigns, raising more than $1 million for the charitable organization that works to improve the lives of Miami-Dade’s citizens.

Through the diligent effort of dedicated ambassadors who coordinated the 2014 campaign at the grassroots level, more than 3,900 faculty and staff participated, raising $1.16 million—up from the previous campaign that brought in $1.13 million.

“I would like to thank our wonderful ambassadors and each and every one of our employees who participated in a fundraising event, or made a payroll pledge, or gave a one-time gift,” said Larry Marbert, UM’s vice president for real estate and facilities, who chaired the University’s 2014 campaign. “Every contribution makes a difference, and it was an honor to play a small role in helping the U deliver once again.”

This year, Marbert said he hopes to improve on employee participation, which declined somewhat from last year. He added that his team “will work to engage more participants.”

Aside from being successful, the 2014 campaign was fun, with a variety of innovative events and fundraisers. They included the Dunk Tank, Candy Grams, Coin Wars, Hoop it Up, Crazy Hat, pictures with Sebastian, Taste of UM, and Flick Football, to name a few.

One of only a handful of local institutions to consistently exceed the $1 million mark, UM has supported the United Way for nearly 40 years, enhancing countless lives through a host of programs aimed at improving education, financial stability, and health.
