Thanks to the generous support of hundreds of faculty members, staffers and retirees, The University of Toledo surpassed its $125,000 goal for UTC3 — the University’s annual Community Charitable Campaign that supports more than 220 local nonprofit organizations.
“I’m very proud of our UT community for generously supporting this community campaign,” said President Sharon L. Gaber. “There are many people in need throughout our region, and I’m glad we can assist nonprofits in their support. UT has once again demonstrated its commitment to our mission and serving this community.”
“Coming on the heels of last year’s very successful inaugural Day of Giving, it was really difficult asking faculty and staff to make another contribution — especially just prior to the holidays,” said Dr. Michele Soliz, assistant vice president for student success and inclusion, and the 2017 UTC3 chair. “It was really great to see our campuses come together to help others. We truly are one!”
To thank each person who submitted a UTC3 ePledge form, all contributors have been sent an email inviting them to a breakfast with President Sharon L. Gaber that will be held Tuesday, Jan. 30. A hearty buffet of breakfast foods will be served, followed by drawings for many prizes. Additionally, contributors may pick up their complimentary UTC3 gift — a tumbler with straw — at the breakfast.
If you contributed to UTC3, be sure to respond to your email invitation by Tuesday, Jan. 23, whether you plan to attend the breakfast or not. Your gift will then be made available for you to pick up at the breakfast, or mailed to your office by early February.
