United Way, Day 18: How we stack up

Image with file name: United0918.jpg
As we near the end of the 2013 United Way campaign, the School of Allied Health Professions -- for the second year in a row -- has achieved a 100 percent participation rate!

Geri Finn, the SAHP representative on the United Way steering committee, said the members of the school were excited to match last year's goal of 100 percent participation.

"The whole school came through to help meet that goal." she said.

So who's fighting for second? Let's see how the other departments -- many of them, to be fair, larger than SAHP -- stack up with two days of the campaign to go.

  • Chancellor's Unit: 86 percent
  • Research: 78 percent
  • College of Public Health: 75 percent
  • College of Nursing: 70 percent
  • Eppley Institute: 61 percent
  • Student and Academic Affairs: 58 percent
  • Facilities Management and Planning: 58 percent
  • ITS: 55 percent
  • College of Pharmacy: 49 percent
  • Business & Finance: 48 percent
  • Human Resources: 40 percent
  • Munroe-Meyer Institute: 32 percent
  • College of Medicine: 32 percent
  • College of Dentistry (Omaha): 2 percent

In total, UNMC has donated $128,553, more than 82 percent toward the goal of $156,000, with 42 percent employee participation. We've reached the participation goal, but are still well short of the monetary goal. Remember, today and tomorrow are the last days to donate!
