With the participation of every faculty and staff member, Baylor University will continue to maintain its role in the support of our community. Our goal this year is for 200 employees to give $42/month or at least $500 to the General Impact Fund.  You will have the opportunity to do so during our United Way Workplace Campaign from October 1 – November 20.  If you can't give $500, any amount you give helps. Sacrificing any amount, can help provide families with breakfast for a week, a stay for a Wacoan family escaping abuse, students with afterschool programming, and prenatal follow-up visits for low-income pregnant women.

This year there will be weekly raffle opportunities offered for anyone who has committed to contribute by that week with the following schedule of drawings:

  • October 8 – Ride in the Homecoming Parade in the Baylor FJ Cruiser
    WINNER: Debbie Weaver
  • October 15 – Signed Football (Coach Aranda)
    WINNER: Sonia Hunt
  • October 22 – Local Gift Cards and Swag Bag
    WINNER: Patricia Pack
  • October 29 – Signed basketball (Coach Collen)
  • November 5 – Local Gift Cards and Swag Bag
  • November 12 – Signed basketball (Coach Drew)
  • November 22 (Monday) – Parking Spot and division/college/school

Each of these options below allows you to choose your method of contribution:

  • A monthly gift equal to an hour's pay (bi-weekly staff) or 1% (salaried faculty/staff) or
  • A monthly gift in the dollar amount you choose, for the number of months you choose or...
  • A one-time gift

The Waco McLennan County United Way allocates voluntary contributions to local member agencies that provide health and human services. By making a donation, you are ensuring agencies and programs receive funding throughout the year.

You can also choose to continue to build the Baylor Family Compassion Fund which will help those in need right here at Baylor. You can do so by checking the heart-shaped box on your pledge form.
