Payroll deduction is a convenient way for university employees to invest in their community through United Way, but did you know you may also designate your contributions to charities not affiliated with United Way? Did you know you may designate your contribution to another community? If you have a special charity you wish to donate to, please be sure to indicate it on your pledge card. Every pledge counts.
