The UT Charitable Campaign breakfast originally slated for Jan. 31 and postponed due to inclement weather has been rescheduled for Friday, April 5, from 8 to 9 a.m. in the Savage Arena Grogan Room.

All faculty, staff and retirees who contributed to the 2018 community campaign (formerly known as the United Way campaign) will receive an email invitation to the complimentary breakfast buffet this week. Donors planning to attend the breakfast April 5 are asked to use the link provided in the email to RSVP online. Reservations are due by Wednesday, March 27.

Hosted by President Sharon L. Gaber, the breakfast enables donors to celebrate, as well as to pick up their thank-you gift — a sturdy UT tote bag.

Thanks to hundreds of UT employees and retirees, the University once again exceeded its annual community campaign goal, pledging more than $131,000. The funds support more than 220 charities represented by four foundations: Community Health Charities of Ohio, Northwest Ohio Community Shares, EarthShare Ohio and United Way of Greater Toledo.

“While we were disappointed that bitterly cold temperatures necessitated rescheduling the breakfast, we hope providing a new date this far in advance will enable many more donors the chance to attend the breakfast,” said Dr. Willie McKether, vice president for diversity and inclusion, and chair of the 2018 UT Charitable Campaign.

Donors who are unable to attend the breakfast may pick up their thank-you gift on either Main Campus or Health Science Campus. A notification of dates, times and locations will be sent to them shortly after the breakfast.
