The 2012 Rice Campaign for the United Way
As a member of the Rice family, your contribution to United Way not only helps the entire Houston community, it also supports the university's Vision for the Second Century commitment to positively engaging with our city. And by combining the resources of all Rice donors with the oversight and expertise of United Way, we have a greater economic impact. Individually, and together, our gifts to United Way make a positive difference in people's lives and in the quality of living in our home city.
United Way provides the social safety net for our community. Trained volunteers measure program investments against quality standards, make on-site visits, study issues and make recommendations so that every program is well run, efficient and successful. Each year, United Way touches nearly one out of every two lives in our community.
Let's do something about it. Download the 2012–13 pledge form and make your contribution today!
Tuesday, Jan. 22 * 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. * Grand Hall, Rice Memorial Center
