The final numbers for the 2007 State Employees’ Charitable Campaign at UConn show the campaign was a resounding success.
The Storrs campus, School of Law, and Health Center all received awards from campaign headquarters “for stellar results, dazzling participating, and overwhelming support.”
Final results for Storrs showed that 604 contributors pledged $160,063, a 33 percent increase in donors over the 2006 campaign and 18.5 percent more funds raised over the $135,000 goal.
Health Center employees contributed $172,424, surpassing their goal of $170,000.
The Law School exceeded its goal of $9,366 by raising $12,508, a 40 percent increase over the 2006 campaign.
The Storrs campus and those at Avery Point, Stamford, Torrington, Waterbury, and West Hartford collectively raised $180,795.
President Michael J. Hogan, who supplied a campaign pledge card link on his website, says, “When UConn employees give back in such a significant way, they show themselves to be good citizens of those communities where they live and work. Contributing to local agencies that hold the network of these communities together is an important part of our employees’ participation in our statewide partnership, and I’m very grateful to everyone who made this a personal priority.”
