2014 Benevolent Fund Campaign
February 15 - March 15
April 1 - April 30
Build a bright future for a child who enters school ready to learn because of vision screening and corrective care. Build a future with safe, affordable housing through Habitat for Humanity. Build a meaningful future for an adult with developmental disabilities through job training and placement. Build a future with less disease and suffering and more comfort and celebration. Your pledge to the Benevolent Fund supports health care screenings, affordable homeownership, job training and cutting edge medical research. Your pledge is what we need to build our future now!
The Benevolent Fund, established and governed by UAB employees, recognizes the importance of building up our community. Our framework of giving supports more than 120 local non-profits and our Employee Emergency Assistance Program. To learn more about the Benevolent Fund, the programs and agencies we support, please visit uab.edu/benfund.
The Benevolent Fund makes giving easy through payroll deductions. Your tax deductible gift to the Benevolent Fund combined with gifts from other employees shows UAB’s support of our community and allows us to do so much more than any one of us can do individually. We need your pledge to build our future!
Our Future Begins. Now.
Building UAB’s Habitat House
This year for the first time as a group, UAB employees will build affordable housing for someone in our community. Please join us. Full sponsorship of a new house through Habitat For Humanity is only $50,000.
Help us reach our Goal!
If every employee donates an additional $2.50 to the Benevolent Fund we can build a new house from the ground up. Help us sponsor our first Habitat House by making your additional pledge to UAB’s Habitat House (581).
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat. Each year, over 15,000 volunteers donate their time to build and renovate houses. This gift of time saves Habitat Birmingham more than $2 million in labor costs each year. Volunteers participate in construction and the only requirements are a willingness to serve and to learn. UAB will have numerous opportunities for volunteering as individuals and in groups.
Build in the Fall of 2014.
