2016 Combined Charitable Contributions Campaign Update

February 28, 2017

By Victor Green

Every year, the Division of Government and 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 technical assistance. Both organizations provide numerous community service programs through a large network of volunteers and donors.

The 2016 campaign, led by chair Matthew W. Seeger, Dean of the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts, raised a grand total of $59,787. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this year’s effort!
