Community Giving Campaign

2018-19 Community Giving Campaign

The annual Community Giving Campaign offers UM employees the opportunity to give back to the community by making donations to local charitable organizations through one-time gifts or payroll deductions. The 2018-19 Community Giving Campaign will be open to UM employees Oct. 23-Nov. 30.

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.

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

UM's Community Giving Campaign policy requires that agencies or federations applying for the campaign complete the application and submit all requested supporting documents by the application deadline. The application period for the 2018-19 campaign closed June 25.

The UM Community Giving Campaign Executive Committee reviews each application in July and will notify agencies directly regarding the qualification of their application.
