By the numbers: University raises funds for United Way

United Way officials and University representatives gathered April 10 in the Faculty Room of Nassau Hall to acknowledge the $185,665 raised for the United Way in this year's campus drive.

  • The campaign raised $163,350 in contributions from faculty, staff and retirees — $119,114 from the main campus, $36,932 from the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and $7,304 from retirees.
  • The University matched gifts with 15 cents on the dollar for every payroll deduction contribution and 10 cents on the dollar for all other gifts, for a total University contribution of $22,314.60.
  • All donations will be distributed to United Way programs in Mercer County or employees' home communities, or to other health and human services agencies that were designated by individual donors.
