Message from Trident United Way campaign chair
At MUSC, we have earned a reputation for caring about the communities
where we live and work. As the fall season begins, we have another
opportunity to demonstrate our community spirit and leadership through
the 2009 Trident United Way Campaign.
Trident United Way not only provides services to those who are sick,
disadvantaged and disabled, but also to average families who face
unexpected problems. This year, Trident United Way will assist more
than 70 non-profit organizations in the Tri-county area.
Trident United Way is different from other organizations because of the
broad cross-section of local volunteers who decide how your
contributions will be distributed. Committees of volunteers allocate
funds to support the following areas of need: promoting health and
wellness, creating economic stability, nurturing young people,
responding to basic needs, and supporting senior citizens.
It is important to note that you can designate your gift to any 501 (c)
(3) non-profit organization, including the MUSC Foundation. When you
make a gift to the 2009 Trident United Way Campaign, you can earmark it
for the MUSC program of your choice on the pledge form. You can also
designate the MUSC program by visiting https://donor.united-e-way.org/?campaign=2009MUSC. An online gift can be made through payroll deduction, credit card, or cash/check to be paid at a later date.
I strongly encourage you to consider making a gift to this year’s
campaign. Given the uncertain economic times, your generosity is
critical to provide services to those who most need assistance. Even a
small donation makes a big impact! We are very proud of the past
support our employees have given to Trident United Way. Your support
will enable us to reach our goal: $220,000. The 2009 campaign ends on
Dec. 15, so please send in your gift today!
