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 Arts Council of Santa Clara County is a privately funded, non-profit organization that supports 75 diverse visual and performing arts groups. Established in 1983, the Arts Council has become the second largest private arts council in California.
  • The Bay Area Black United Fund aids Bay Area black communities by helping them to become self-sufficient. The fund serves as a vehicle for community growth and development.
  • The Combined Health Appeal of California is a coalition of 31 voluntary health agencies, including the American Diabetes Association, the National Kidney Foundation, the Easter Seal Society and Planned Parenthood, among others.
  • Earth Share of California supports 84 groups working to create a cleaner and more healthful environment. It was founded in 1982 by 12 environmental groups. Recent activities have included planting of thousands of redwood seedlings in Redwood National Park and the painting of “No Dumping - Flows to Bay” signs on more than 28,000 area storm drains.
  • The United Way of Santa Clara County supports more than 300 health and human care programs for citizens of Santa Clara County. Last year, one in three county residents used their services.

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.
