1994 Stanford Charitable Giving Campaign begun

STANFORD -- The 1994 Stanford Charitable Giving Campaign has officially begun with a letter asking all university, Stanford Health Services and Stanford Linear Accelerator Center employees to participate.

Faculty and staff are being asked to help support a number of local community service organizations that are concerned with the arts, social services, health care and the environment.

Last year, contributions from 622 faculty and staff totaled more than $179,000, surpassing the 1992 campaign total of $175,000. This year's campaign goal is to increase both the number of givers and the dollars raised.

Donations can be made by check or via payroll deduction.

The groups participating this year are the Arts Council of Santa Clara County, Bay Area Black United Fund, Combined Health Appeal of California, Earth Share of California and the United Way of Santa Clara County. The same groups benefited from last year's campaign.

The 1994 Charitable Giving Campaign will run through Friday, Nov. 4. For more information, call Sally Pinkner in the Office of Government and Community Relations at 725-3330.
