College Gives Back

Let's break it down by numbers: 67 pledges, $37,534 donated (15 percent of UO total), $560.21 average gift. Those figures represent the contributions by Lundquist College of Business faculty and staff to the annual Oregon Charitable Fund Drive. More than half of the college's employees participated, giving part of their paychecks to charities throughout the state. Each year, the Oregon Charitable Fund Drive asks state employees to give to their choice of more than 800 local non-profits. Oh, and for the record, total UO pledges were $248,065.00-$120,000 more than OSU and PSU combined. Go Ducks.
