The campus community showed its generosity by donating $119,029 in this year’s United Way of Brevard campaign, exceeding the $110,000 goal.
“I truly appreciate your support of our community,” said Alison Bogart, Florida Tech’s United Way campaign manager. “Our campaign success is one of many reasons I am so very proud to work at Florida Tech.”
Donations came in a variety of ways, including special events such as penny wars, homecoming king and queen competition, a raffle at the Staff Advisory Halloween party, and dining cash register donations.
Bogart said more than 100 employees pledged for the first time or increased their gifts.
The United Way of Brevard keeps donations local, where they can help make possible a broad range of safety net services and groups, from the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation and Brevard Achievement Center to Children’s Home Society and the Second Harvest Food Bank.
