Message from Chancellor's Office

Advance The Common Good For All By
Improving Education, Health and Financial Stability

To UTHSC Faculty and Staff:

In a few days, each of us will have a chance to make a difference in our community through our annual United Way Campaign.

At the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, we’ve always been about helping others and strengthening the community. Now our commitment is even more important. Soon you’ll have the opportunity to show how much you care by supporting the annual United Way campaign. United Way advances the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all.

With one gift to United Way, you will touch the lives of many individuals and families. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We all win when a child has a head start on quality education that leads to success in future jobs, when individuals have enough income to support a family through retirement, and when we all enjoy good health. These results and changes have benefits that ripple out to the community as a whole, helping others and strengthening the community. Now, more than ever, your gift goes further with United Way. Let’s make this the most successful campaign ever! Please join me in giving to United Way. Remember you can give, you can advocate and you can volunteer. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.

Last year, over 200 Health Science Center employees pledged more than $52,000 to United Way of the Mid-South.

Our team members are well recognized for our leadership skills and generosity in support of our community. We’ve consistently demonstrated that public service, a core element of our mission, translates into outreach that strengthens our neighborhoods. Today, our commitment is even more important, because when we engage with our community, we encourage others to follow our example. 

Please join the UTHSC United Way Campaign, and make this another record-setting year for giving. Remember, your donation -- no matter what amount -- makes a difference and is vitally important. 

If you have any questions about the 2015-16 UTHSC United Way Campaign, please contact Elise Moore, our  campaign coordinator, at 448-5618 or  

Thank you in advance for your generous support.
