Duquesne Surpasses Goal in Campus United Way Campaign
Duquesne University exceeded its $85,000 United Way of Allegheny County campaign goal by raising $104,929.
"The United Way is the one agency that addresses the entire range of human service needs in our hometown," said Dr. Evan Stoddard, associate dean of the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts, who chaired this year's campaign. "My personal thanks go to all those special members of the Duquesne family who helped to build a better community for all through their contributions to the United Way this year."
Overall, 516 employees-or 33 percent-participated in the campus United Way campaign.
Funds raised through the campaign will be used to address critical needs in local communities.
