Combined Charitable Contributions Campaign Kicks Off on Campus
Every year the Division of Community Affairs hosts the United Way for Southeastern Michigan (UWSEM) and the Black United Fund (BUF) combined charitable contributions campaign fundraiser. United Way provides our community with an independent safety net of health and human services by supporting a number of community service agencies. The Black United Fund is a community-based resource center that assists community efforts through referrals, funding, consultation and/or technical assistance. Both organizations provide numerous community service programs through a large network of volunteers and donors. This year’s campaign chair is Dean Matthew W. Seeger, College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts, and the co-chair is Dean Cheryl E. Waites, School of Social Work. The 2017 campaign began in mid-November and will end in mid-December, with the goal of raising $75,000.
