The Rev. Dr. Ben Griffin was United’s president for about 8 years in the late 80s and early 90s. He died earlier this month and we extend our prayers to his family and loved ones. Although many of us never knew him in person, his legacy of a commitment to social justice and interfaith engagement remain the hallmarks of United’s focus some 23 years later. Organizations like United are built upon the wisdom, commitment and love of leaders like Rev. Dr. Griffin.
#GratitudeGiveDay, Tuesday, November 14, 2017, was a wonderful success! Through the generous on-line support of many of United’s alumni, friends, faculty and staff we raised $21,975 in actual gifts. As this amount exceeded our $20,000 goal of individual gifts, it activated the $20,000 match. For the day, you helped us raise $41,975.
