Dear Baylor Family,

As I walk through campus and spend time with our precious students, I am overwhelmed by the many blessings that have been bestowed upon us. We have created a rich and vibrant community by serving one another with our hearts and minds daily. Indeed, Baylor’s selection as one of the "Great Colleges to Work For" is a testament to those who tirelessly give of themselves to our beloved university.

Each year we have the opportunity to share our gifts in order to meet some of the critical needs of our neighbors. We do this by supporting programs that deliver health care, food, shelter, advocacy, childcare and so much more through the United Way. As you prayerful consider a donation to the Baylor "More Than Me" campaign, please remember that almost twenty-two percent of McLennan County residents, more than 53,000 of our neighbors, live in poverty. The United Way of Waco-McLennan County alone provides support to more than 41,000 people so our compassion truly does make a difference.

Mark 12:28-31
One of the scribes who had listened to them debating appreciated that Jesus had given a good answer and put a further question to him, 'Which is the first of all the commandments?' Jesus replied 'This is the first: Listen, Israel, the Lord our God is the one, only Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You must love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.'
There are many ways you may contribute to our community. You can choose to give monthly or make a one-time pledge. You can designate a gift to the organization of your choice as listed on your pledge card or even help those in need on our own campus through the Baylor Family Compassion Fund.

Thank you for the many ways you support Baylor and our community.

In sincere gratitude,

Lori Baker
