United Way Campaign

United Way Campaign Runs October 18 - December 21

A message from President Ronald Daniels and Campaign Chair Patricia Davidson

Each autumn, we kick off the annual Johns Hopkins University United Way campaign, celebrating our partnership with United Way of Central Maryland as one vibrant example of the ways our University strives to engage with our surrounding communities and connect with our neighbors.

The volunteer and philanthropic interests of our faculty and staff vary broadly; as a community, we express our generosity through countless activities. In each of the past several years, through the United Way partnership, the Johns Hopkins community has raised over $2.2 million in support of critical efforts to improve the lives of those in need – a significant accomplishment.  

We encourage you again to identify a cause that is important to you, and contribute in any way you can. The United Way campaign allows you to designate your pledge in a way that is most meaningful to you. The Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund, for example, supports nonprofit organizations working to bring stability and opportunity to the communities around our campuses by addressing needs such as public health and employment. Or, you might designate your donation to any nonprofit whose work resonates with you personally. Your contribution, however you choose to make it, will have a positive and meaningful impact on the health of our community.

To make an online pledge, visit And keep an eye out for announcements about Hopkins Got Talent, a new signature fundraising event showcasing a variety of performances by our talented employees.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
