Faculty and staff are invited to attend the remaining UT Community Charitable Campaign Federation Fair slated for Tuesday, Nov. 22, from noon to 2 p.m. on Health Science Campus.

The fair’s location has been changed to the Four Season’s Bistro Atrium.

UTC3 campaign webTake a break this afternoon to meet representatives from some of the 220 community charities that the campaign supports, while partaking of refreshments.

This year the UT Community Charitable Campaign’s goal is $125,000, and to date the University has raised $41,600. The campaign runs until Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Understanding that everyone’s household budget faces different challenges over time, UTC3’s 2016 chairperson, Dr. Kaye M. Patten, senior vice president for student affairs, said, “We want to keep things simple this year and so are asking everyone to ‘Simply Give’ whatever amount they can afford.”

Every person who contributes to the campaign — regardless of the amount — will receive a long-sleeved, UT T-shirt for their generosity, as well as an invitation to a breakfast in early 2017.

To make a donation, use the link contained in Patten’s weekly UTC3 emails, the next of which will be sent Wednesday, Nov. 30, due to this week’s Thanksgiving holiday. Donors may designate on the ePledge form the specific charities they would like their gift to support, and all donations are tax-deductible. Those who choose to have their gift payroll-deducted will have their contribution begin by mid to late January and spread over 20 paychecks.
