Why We Invest in the United Way

Elizabeth Stauderman“Through United Way, my contribution is joined with those of my colleagues for maximum impact. United Way supports our neighbors where the need is greatest and delivers tangible results. I support a strong Rochester community. That’s why I support United Way.”
— ELIZABETH STAUDERMAN, Vice President for Communications

Jane Shukitis“Every year UR Medicine Home Care delivers over 250,000 meals to over 800 homebound seniors in Monroe County through our Meals On Wheels program. We could not do this without the support of United Way, who has been the major source of funding for this important service for over 50 years. I give to United Way because I have personally seen the impact their financial support has on our most vulnerable neighbors. Their mission helps us achieve our mission, and together we are able to make a real difference in the lives of people.”
—JANE SHUKITIS BSN, MPA, President and CEO, UR Medicine Home Care

George Vanderzwaag“By giving to the United Way, I support the larger community within the context of my role at the University. I know that my gift makes a difference to the United Way, but it also makes a difference in how our institution demonstrates the importance of our community to our institutional future.”
—GEORGE H. VANDERZWAAG, Executive Director of Athletics

Clifford Smith“The United Way has helped us manage our charitable contributions for more than a decade. Each year we have transferred appreciated securities to the United Way, receiving credit for the current value of the gift while avoiding paying capital gains taxes. At our direction, they then send checks to an array of deserving organizations. This arrangement allows us to make gifts that are tax-efficient.”
—CLIFFORD W SMITH, Louise and Henry Epstein Professor of Business Administration and Professor of Finance and Economics, Simon Business School
