A statewide assessment of United Way giving at Florida’s largest colleges and universities has found that Florida Institute of Technology had the highest percentage of participation and the largest per-capita donation.

The United Way of Florida report, which examined 31 Florida schools with at least 500 employees, found that 48 percent of Florida Tech’s 928 employees gave a per capita average of $181 in the 2014 campaign.

Both totals were far and away tops in their categories, contributing to Florida Tech’s overall total raised of $168,161. Florida Tech’s final United Way tally for 2014, which included the value of the university’s in-kind donations such as a loaned leader and hosting the campaign kick-off, was $177,543, the fifth-highest total among the top 75 Brevard County campaigns.

The 2015 campaign will come to campus the week of Dec. 7-11.
