More ways than one to support United Way

As a campus community, Iowa State has a goal of raising $415,000 in cash and pledges by Dec. 1 for the United Way of Story County.

Human Sciences dean Laura Jolly is the chair of the campus campaign, with associate provost for faculty Dawn Bratsch-Prince serving as chair for leadership gifts. They're assisted by employee volunteers across the university.

One way units are able to hit their mark is through fundraising initiatives opened to the wider campus community. Below is a short list of what Inside staff have compiled to date. Send us your United Way fundraising event and we'll add it it to the list.
