Support United Way during this season of sharing


Thanksgiving is the perfect time to share good fortune with those in the Greater Houston community who need the kind of help that the United Way provides by making a pledge to the Rice United Way Campaign.

The annual United Way Campaign is one of the0907_UW-b most important ways Rice engages with the Greater Houston community.

To give by check or credit card, or to designate any pledge — including a payroll pledge — to the benefit of a specific United Way agency, geographic area or community program or priority, campus donors may use the pledge form available on the Rice United Way Campaign website,
