Your Support Makes a Real Difference

United Way of Pierce County is committed to making measurable improvements in the lives of people in our community by providing a safety net for those in crisis. United Way is an important part of our community.

And so are you!

Now is the time to team up with United Way and PLU as we seek to reach our United Way campaign goal of $20,000 and a 25 percent faculty and staff participation rate.

You can help make this goal a reality. And remember, how much you give isn’t as important as the fact that you give.

But wait! There’s more!

For those who give for the first time or give more this year, the PLU campaign has secured a $6,000 challenge matching grant. It is simple, every new dollar you give will be increased by 50 percent.
