The monthlong Vanderbilt Community Giving Campaign will run until Nov. 4, and
features four campaign partners—Community Health Charities, Community Shares of Tennessee, Nashville Alliance
for Public Education and the United Way of Metropolitan Nashville.
All four groups are focused on improving the communities in which we live. Each
recent year Vanderbilt has raised nearly $1 million during the workplace giving
effort, and this year’s goal is again $1 million. Organizers of the 2010 campaign are hoping to involve the nearly 20,000
Vanderbilt employees in an effort to have full participation.
Over the next few weeks, coordinators will work to spread the word about the
federations, which represent hundreds of charitable and public service
organizations with a focus of serving communities throughout the state.
Below are stories featuring the impact some of the agencies have had on the
community-at-large, which includes Vanderbilt employees.
