Join us in celebrating the 60th anniversary of the United Way of Merced County.

Since 2001, UC Merced has managed an annual campaign to raise funds for the United Way of Merced County. Through fun events and creative ways to give, the campus campaign strives to increase faculty, staff and student awareness and support for the needs of others in our community. Our campus has demonstrated incredible generosity and support for improving the lives of others in our community.

For the past 60 years, the United Way of Merced County has worked to advance the common good in our local community by partnering with agencies and programs that improve education, help individuals achieve financial stability, and promote healthy living.

**Campaign Extended!**

Due to the IT outage that our campus experienced this week, the UC Merced 2014 United Way Campaign has been extended until Friday, October 17 at NOON. Please use the online pledge form to make a one-time donation, pledge a monthly payroll deduction, or commit to volunteer with a United Way organization.
