Victory University’s first-ever United Way fundraising campaign set a goal of $2,000 – and true to the education center’s name, they met that goal… then they kept raising more until they left that number far behind, raising over $10,250!

Representatives from Victory University presented a check for $10,257 to United Way earlier this month at their campus located at 255 North Highland.

Victory University is a four-year liberal arts Christian university in the Mid-South that provides education to its students in a Christ-centered, liberal arts community.

Clint Anderson, United Way’s director of Youth Programs/Fundraising and Kristin Davidson, a United Way Senior Specialist in the Fundraising department, attended the check presentation.

We thank the generous donors at Victory University for their support of our work to improve local education, income and health, and congratulate them on a great “first” United Way fundraising campaign!
