By the numbers: University raises funds for United Way
United Way officials and Princeton University representatives gathered April 7 in Chancellor Green to acknowledge the $148,727 raised for the United Way in this year's campaign.
The campaign raised $130,702 in contributions from faculty, staff and retirees — $101,006 from the main campus, $22,377 from the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and $7,319 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 $18,025.
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.
