  • Get a monetary credit for your donation

Turn your old home and clothing items into a gift when you donate them to the 2016 United Way "Yard Sale"! You will receive a monetary credit for the sale value of your donation. The more you donate the bigger your contribution! For more info call ext. 4669 or contact or to learn more about this year's campaign.

The DU 50/50 Raffle allows our faculty and staff to donate to United Way of SELA, which benefits hundreds of causes statewide by participating in an electronic 50/50 raffle. From January 18th until February 17th, half of the net proceeds collected from the raffle will benefit Dillard and United Way of SELA, while one lucky employee will win the remaining half of those proceeds! Log on to to enter and donate today!
