UM Employees Donate $106K to Local Nonprofits

Community Giving Campaign

More than 400 University of Montana employees participated in the 2017-18 Community Giving Campaign by donating $106,136 to local charitable organizations.

The annual campaign offers UM employees the opportunity to make donations to various charitable organizations through one-time gifts or payroll deductions.

In total, 412 UM employees donated an average of $258 each to the 11 local nonprofits and two nonprofit federations that applied and were selected to participate in the campaign. The total amount raised during the 2017-18 campaign was the most since the 2012-13 campaign.

The fundraising effort that became UM’s Community Giving Campaign began during the 1986-87 academic year when faculty and staff pledged $25,000. Since that first year of organized giving, UM employees have donated more than $2.2 million to local nonprofits through the campaign.

Nonprofit agencies that would like to apply for the 2018-19 will find an application posted on this page in May 2018. If you would like to be mailed an application at that time, call Cassy Gladwin at 406-243-2787. Applications will be due at the end of June, submitted applications will reviewed in August, and the 2018-19 Community Giving Campaign will take place in November 2018.
