United Way Campaign

 The 2018 Princeton University United Way Campaign takes place November 1 through November 30 on both main campus and the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. Information about the United Way of Greater Mercer County, donation distribution, and payment methods can be found on the How to Give page. 

For more information about donation disbursements and local United Way programs, go to the United Way of Greater Mercer County website.

Princeton University has raised 114,919.96 for the 2018 United Way campaign so far.


Less than 15 percent of all donations cover standard indirect costs related to management and fundraising efforts. This amount is well within the normal range recommended and monitored by charity watchdog organizations.

All organizations receiving funds from the United Way of Greater Mercer County are required to be in compliance with the USA Patriot Act. United Way of Greater Mercer County will retain funds designated to agencies failing to meet compliance requirements for use in funding human service needs in the community.
