Student United Way
As the first true student run United Way in the nation, The Student United Way is committed to leadership through service and teamwork by educating, engaging, advocating, and fundraising to increase student involvement in the betterment of our FSU, Tallahassee, and Leon County community.
Serving as a microcosm of the United Way of the Big Bend, the Student United Way strives to cover all aspects of service.
A Three Pronged Approach to Service:
Giving: To teach students to give back, to donate, and to invest in your community and in humanity. The Student United Way is in part a fundraising organization, like all United Ways. These funds are allocated out to certain agencies and events that help others.
Advocacy: To teach students to become politically activated, to teach students of social injustice issues and promotion of equality of opportunity, and to teach students how to engage in fixing some of society's most persistent problems.
Volunteer: To teach students the importance of volunteerism and the promotion of service to others. To make service to others an integral part of being a Seminole.
