The 2011-12 Campus Chest campaign wrapped up its official final week with pledges totaling $480,507 or 81.44 percent of the $590,000 goal. The campaign has been extended for another week to provide additional opportunity for employees to make pledges.
The Campus Chest campaign has met or exceeded its goal consistently for the last twenty years and has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to the East Tennessee community. During tough economic times our contributions become even more important for these social and health related nonprofit agencies.
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 Office of the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor for Research, UT Foundation, College of Business Administration, UT Libraries, UT Athletics, and the Vice Chancellor for Communications.
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.
