Dear ________,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2013 Boston University Employee Giving Campaign.

As we have done over the past three years, employees at Boston University will continue to have the option to support United Way, the Boston University Community Service Center (CSC), or both.

The CSC and United Way are both committed to addressing many of the same basic community needs, helping with the education of our youth, helping to provide the essential requirements of food and shelter, and striving to improve the lives of those who need it most. In these challenging times your generous support is critical, as an increasing number of families are living paycheck to paycheck.

Last year, our partnership succeeded in raising more than $151,000! These dollars helped to ensure that United Way and the CSC had the necessary resources to continue their ongoing support of our community. The CSC has always been committed to, and involved with, the larger community that surrounds Boston University. If you choose to give to the CSC, please note that 100 percent of your gift will go directly to CSC-related programs!

The link below is your opportunity to participate by making a confidential and secure online donation. Please participate in this year’s campaign by giving to either or both of these fine organizations. A pledge of $75 or more will make you eligible for one of the exciting incentive prizes that will be given throughout the campaign.

Thanks in advance for supporting the Boston University Employee Giving Campaign! Our campaign goal this year is $170,000 . I hope we can count on your support. In order to achieve these goals, please consider increasing your donation over last year’s gift if you can. Together, we can accomplish more than any one of us can do alone.
