The statewide Charitable Fund Drive began on September 15th for state agencies and retirees, giving individuals an opportunity to directly give back and make an impact across the state of Oregon. Thanks in part to the efforts of staff here at United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley and agency coordinators with the state, the 2021 Charitable Fund Drive has been a great success so far. Funds raised through the Charitable Fund Drive are distributed across 19 umbrella groups which represent over 600 charities collectively, supporting a wide variety of causes. The Drive will run through November 30th for state agencies and retirees, but as of now a total of $126,000 has been raised. This is a significant response from those asked to participate, and is truly indicative of the community's desire to support one another.
State universities will begin their drives beginning November 15th, running through December 31st. With the current rate of donations and continued efforts from staff and coordinators, the 2021 Charitable Fund Drive is shaping up to be an incredibly successful effort.
