United Way Campus Campaign Recognized with Award
The United Way of Allegheny County has recognized Duquesne University's 2015 United Way campaign with a Bronze Circle Award.
Presented at the United Way's annual luncheon, the award is given to organizations with 500 or more full-time employees that raise a minimum of $100,000 in funds and demonstrate excellence in campaign engagement, energy and education.
In 2015, Duquesne raised $117,748-nearly nine percent more than its initial campaign goal-and successfully exceeded the United Way's 105 Percent Challenge by increasing its number of leadership donors.
Thanks to the generosity of the campus community, Duquesne's efforts helped the United Way of Allegheny County's 2015 campaign raise a grand total of $34,788,559.
Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. Duquesne, a campus of nearly 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students, has been nationally recognized for its academic programs, community service and commitment to sustainability.
