WMU's United Way campaign tops goal in final hours
Dec. 6, 2002
KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan University community made another record showing this year to help the Greater Kalamazoo United Way raise more than $9 million.
Faculty and staff members rallied to pledge $236,202, topping the goal of $235,000. That amount is 8.6 percent above last year's record-setting total contributions.
The University surpassed the goal Nov. 14, just in time to report its success for the communitywide victory celebration. A Nov. 1 pre-victory celebration at WMU attracted some 60 departmental fund-raisers, and 33 departments were honored for achieving 100 percent participation.
