United Way Campaign

Each year Caltech sponsors a fundraising campaign for the United Way of Greater L.A. Our website will go live on October 10th. United Way's focus in 2014-15 is Housing, Education & Jobs. Their goal is to provide housing for 8.000 homeless; guide 7,500 students to graduate high school; and place 1,200 Veterans into jobs!

You can designate the agencies you would like to donate to and you can elect to have payroll deductions or to send a one-time check. Your donations can also help support three campus organizations: The Child Educational Center/JPL, the Children's Center at Caltech and the Caltech Y. You can designate the agencies you would like to donate to and you can elect to have payroll deductions or to send a one-time check.

We end the campaign with the HomeWalk 5K Event for walkers and runners on November 15th at Exposition Park, featuring Kobe Bryant as the Honorary Chair!
