Northwestern University's United Way Campaign
October 7 to December 19, 2014
The generosity of the Northwestern community in the 2013 campaign made a tremendous impact throughout Chicagoland. This fall, we once again have the opportunity to come together to put that commitment into action. As one of the largest employers in the area, Northwestern University’s contributions make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors in need.
New Donation Website
Online giving will be an available option for this year's campaign! United Way's user-friendly eWay platform saves paper and streamlines the giving process. It's an easy and secure way to make your pledge to the United Way or the charity of your choice via credit card, check, or payroll deduction. We encourage as many donors as possible to donate online, but paper forms will still be available for donors who prefer them.
Shortened Campaign Timeline
Instead of our usual August through December donation period, the 2014 campaign will run from October 7 to December 19. This timeline is more common for campaigns of this type and will enable us to sync up all payroll donations with the start of the calendar year, which will be helpful for donors.
Game Day Tickets
Due to the new campaign timeline, we can no longer offer coupons for pre-season football tickets. We're happy to announce an offer for coupons to the February 21, 2015, NU vs. Penn State basketball game.
