The Vanderbilt Community Giving Campaign for 2009 “Where Will You Fit In” is in full swing. The kick-off for the annual giving effort was held on Sept.
24 in Langford Auditorium and attended by more than 300 coordinators.
The campaign features four federations dedicated to improving local communities – United Way of Metropolitan Nashville, Community Health Charities of Tennessee, Community
Shares and the Nashville Alliance for Public Education.
The campaign runs until Nov. 5. This year’s goal is $925,000. For the past three years, the campaign has surpassed its
goal, reaching the $1 million mark.
Over the next few weeks, coordinators will ask the nearly 20,000 employees at
Vanderbilt to make a contribution to this campaign. Donations may be made
through payroll deduction, credit card or cash/check. Online giving is
encouraged at www.vanderbilt.edu/communitygiving.
Below are stories about how the federations, which represent hundreds of
charitable and public service organizations, help communities throughout the
state, but benefit employees and patients here at Vanderbilt.
