LIVE UNITED :: 2016-17 Campaign

Congrats to MSU Employee Gail Wilson (right) who won a gift basket from Campus Book Mart for donating to United Way.

Here at Mississippi State University, we take a lot of pride in taking care of one another. As we begin a new school year, we want to encourage you to make an investment in our community. Please participate in the 2016-2017 United Way campaign by making a pledge or contribution. Donations made to the United Way of North Central Mississippi help 15 local agencies positively impact thousands of lives in Oktibbeha, Choctaw, Winston, and Webster counties. You can learn more about our United Way agencies work at

You can make a financial contribution to the United Way in one of the following ways:

  1. Go online to and click on the Payroll Deduction link. From there, you will be guided through the necessary steps to make your payroll deduction pledge.
  2. To make a one-time contribution, use the form in the United Way brochure included with this letter. Forms can be mailed to United Way of North Central Mississippi, P.O. Box 1603, Starkville, MS 39760. Cash, check or credit card donations are accepted. You may also choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, or annually.
  3. If you or your department choose to turn in your donations as a group, please send the pledge cards to Michelle Garraway at Mail Stop 9657. Department is Student Leadership & Community Engagement. Email is and phone is 325-2370. From there, pledge cards and donations will be picked up by a United Way representative. All gifts are confidential and any amount given helps to make a difference.

Regardless of how you invest in the community, United Way appreciates your support. All MSU United Way donors will have their names entered into monthly drawings for prizes including apparel, gift certificates, and electronics.

Thank you again for showing that we “Live United” at Mississippi State.
