Reminder: CUNY Campaign For Charitable Giving Ends Dec. 31

To: The Baruch College Community

A gentle reminder that the CUNY Campaign needs your support. For the cost of one cup of coffee per week, you could donate $50 of much needed funding for the charities listed in the booklet you received in your departments. This year more than any other in recent memory, charitable organizations need your support so they can keep their doors open to provide assistance to the neediest New Yorkers.

Send the pledge form to Patricia Imbimbo, Box B 2-150, and a check made out to the CUNY Campaign or sign up for a payroll deduction. The Campaign ends December 31st so don’t delay. To learn more about the CUNY campaign initiative, visit www.cuny.edu/campaign.

Thank you,
Patricia Imbimbo
CUNY Campaign Campus Coordinator, 2008
