A message from our Honorary Chair

I am proud to once again serve as the UA Cares Honorary Chair. The campaign offers a great opportunity to share my personal commitment and the commitment of the university to supporting our local community through charitable giving and volunteerism.

There are a lot of wonderful fundraising activities, like the annual Chorizo Breakfast hosted by the Budget Office and the Chili Cook-Off hosted by Facilities Management for 15 years. Not only do these and many other events provide the means to help others, they provide a climate of goodwill, and they bring excitement and awareness to the campus during UA Cares. I’m looking forward to experiencing some of them firsthand this year, and I encourage all university employees, departments and units to participate in UA Cares.

The UA Cares campaign kicks off on October 8th, 2019. Please think about what matters most to you and give what you can. All UA employees are invited to donate to any University programs through the UA Foundation, and to any United Way Impact Area or 501c3 non-profit organizations of your choice through the United Way of Tucson & Southern Arizona.

Join me by actively participating in the 2019 UA Cares giving campaign. Together, let’s make a commitment to help children, families, seniors, and students in need. Please support non-profits and university programs so they can continue to make a difference in our community. Every donation helps, and every supporter is appreciated. Thank you in advance for helping to make UA Cares a success.


- Robert C. Robbins, M.D. | President
