Salve Regina kicks off its annual United Way campaign
Members of the Salve Regina community have always been generous in contributing their time and talents to those in need. In this time of giving, Salve Regina has embarked on its annual United Way of Rhode Island E-Pledge Campaign.
Regional Catholic colleges and universities have a longstanding tradition of supporting United Way through employee giving campaigns. As an umbrella organization, contributions to United Way help support multiple agencies and programs in our hometown communities, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Newport County, Clean Ocean Access, the Salvation Army and Salve Regina.
To participate, click on the link here. If a participant has donated previously, they can enter the main email they used in the past. They’ll be asked to enter the verification code, and they can click “Register.” They will then receive an email from United Way with a secure website link, and they can can select “Donate” in the email to continue with the pledge process.
If someone has not donated previously, they can enter an email. The system will then prompt them to enter basic information, a verification code, and to click “Register.” Once they’ve submitted their email address, they will receive an email from United Way with a link to donate.
Once inside the actual campaign site, participants can choose to donate to their chosen campaign and select pledge type. The electronic pledge process is easy, and all information is secure. Remember, payroll deduction is the easiest way to give.
When pledging, simply read the screens and press “Next” to go to the subsequent screen. If there are additional messages after filling in all fields, the screen will come back with a message. Just press “Next” again to advance to the next screen.
Participants can designate one’s gift by choosing specific United Way Impact Funds and/or focus areas. When searching for an organization, click on the “+” sign to designate the amount of the gift. They can also search for organizations or use the “Write-Ins” area if they wish to designate a pledge or a portion of a pledge to a specific agency. Donations can be made to the organization of their choice, not just state or United Way funds.
Once pledge is submitted, participants will receive an email confirming gift and designations.
