University Nearing Its Goal in Charity Choice Campaign
With two weeks remaining in the active portion of the 2007 Charity Choice Campaign, Case Western Reserve University needs support from its faculty and staff to reach its goal of $150,000.
Members of the campus community can designate a donation to any of the more than 230 local agencies served by Community Shares, Earth Share of Ohio and the United Way of Greater Cleveland. Faculty and staff can contribute directly to the Charity Choice Campaign through a monthly payroll deduction made online or by printing out a pledge form and returning it through campus mail.
Additional information about the three organizations and the program in general is available on the Charity Choice Campaign 2007 Web site.
