United Way 2016

President’s Message

Joel Seligman

Delores and I are proud to support the University of Rochester’s annual United Way campaign and to demonstrate our commitment to our community. My recent engagement with the Upstate Revitalization Initiative and the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative provided direct examples of the many significant needs of our neighbors, including challenges created by childhood poverty, access to education and adequate jobs training, to name only a few. The United Way is making a difference in these areas – and in many others.

I hope you will join your colleagues in our University’s long tradition of supporting the United Way.  Any amount that you give provides vital services to those who need it most, and 92 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to meet community needs.  I also encourage you to consider using the United Way as a means of contributing to charitable organizations that you usually support directly.  These organizations can receive your contribution through United Way’s efficient means of collection.

Thank you for your generosity and consideration.
