Lafayette’s 2018 United Way campaign attracted 23 new donors who pledged $3,554 toward a campaign total of $51,885 raised. In all, 151 people, including eight retirees, participated in the campaign.
“On behalf of the nonprofits who received United Way funding and, more importantly, the people served by those organizations, I want to thank everyone who participated in the campaign,” said Greg MacDonald, vice president for enrollment and financial aid and the College’s United Way campaign chair. “Many of our faculty, students, and staff volunteer with organizations supported by the United Way, so we witness first-hand the impact that United Way has in our communities.”
The $3,554 pledged by new donors was eligible for a dollar-for-dollar match from City Center Allentown, whose president and co-founder, J.B. Reilly ’83, is a member of Lafayette’s Board of Trustees.
