The University of Tennessee’s 2011-2012 Campus Chest campaign is now at 68 percent of its goal. This year’s goal for the Knoxville area is $590,000. We have raised $404,199 to date.
The campaign is now entering its last official week. The Campus Chest campaign has met or exceeded its goal consistently for the last 20 years.
If you have not yet turned in your card, please see your department representative for more information. Employees can make a one-time donation or pledge through payroll deduction. Any amount is appreciated and will help provide services for the area’s less fortunate individuals and families.
Departments that already have exceeded their goals include the Vice Chancellor for Research, UT Foundation, and the College of Business Administration. UT Libraries, UT Athletics, and the Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration are also close to reaching their departmental goals.
Campus Chest is a comprehensive campaign to support public-service agencies including Community Shares, the Greater Knoxville United Way, and many others. It’s important for employees to remember those less fortunate and give to a charitable organization.
The Knoxville area campaign includes the UT Knoxville campus, UT Institute of Agriculture, Institute for Public Service, UT system, students, and retired personnel in the Knoxville area.
