2021 UK-United Way Campaign

Welcome to the 2021 UK-United Way Campaign Site!

Our campus-wide goal for the campaign is $224,000.

This year, the faculty and staff of the University of Kentucky are being asked to support the United Way Campaign in the Bluegrass.  Last year, members of the UK community contributed over $203,000. Our contributions are now being put to work by United Way agencies throughout the Bluegrass.  This year, the needs may be even greater given the state of the economy.  We are confident that UK employees can be counted on once more to do their part in sustaining these life-enhancing and even life-preserving services for others in need.

Please browse our site during the campaign month of October and discover how you may participate in this year's campaign as we "Live United" across the University of Kentucky campus.

Retiree Campaign

Each year the University of Kentucky's Retiree Campaign provides an opportunity for former employees to again become part of the University team.

The Retiree Campaign is ongoing. For information on how to donate as a retiree visit the Make a Pledge page.
