Rice United Way Campaign at almost 80 percent of goal

As Rice enters the halfway point of its “short and sweet” 2015 Rice United Way Campaign, pledges and contributions total more than $177,000 — 79 percent of the $225,000 goal.

Natural Sciences leads the campus in contributions with $18,412. The Investments Division continues to lead the campus with 100 percent participation. The Housing and Dining Division leads with the most overall donors — 91.

Employees have just four weeks left to participate in the campaign, one of the most important ways Rice engages with the Greater Houston community.

Employees can make a pledge payable by payroll deductions spread over all paychecks in calendar (and tax) year 2016 by logging in at esther.rice.edu and clicking the “United Way” link to authorize a direct payroll contribution, or use the pledge form on the Rice United Way website, www.rice.edu/unitedway. That same form may also be used to make a cash, check or credit card gift (for tax year 2015).
