Make a gift to the Cleveland community this holiday season through Charity Choice; deadline is Dec. 14

It’s not too late to support the Greater Cleveland community through contributions to Charity Choice this holiday season. The deadline to make donations through the program is Dec. 14.

Faculty and staff can designate funds to go to an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit of their choice, such as churches, synagogues or mosques, to which they regularly donate.

The university also has partnered with three organizations to which employees can give:

  • United Way of Greater Cleveland, the leading convener and funder of partnerships focused on solutions for the community’s health and human service priorities. United Way makes a difference in the lives of 450,000 people throughout Greater Cleveland.
  • Greater Cleveland Community Shares, which addresses the root causes of social problems facing our neighborhoods, our community and our region. Member organizations provide education, promote health care, protect children and women, advance home ownership, provide job training and employment, build neighborhoods, and work to end discrimination.
  • EarthShare Ohio (ESO), a federation working to raise donations for local, regional and national nonprofit conservation and environmental organizations. ESO beneficiary organizations provide vital services in the areas of environmental education, pollution and sustainability.

Campaign co-chairs Vice President for Student Affairs Lou Stark and Weatherhead School of Management Dean Manoj Malhotra have set a goal of $180,000 in donations and 550 participants for this year’s campaign.

Donations can be made through Dec. 14 via a one-time payment or through payroll deductions throughout the year.
