Leaders at the first United Way meeting after last month's campaign kickoff reported that 31.1 percent of the goal has been reached. About 25 people attended.
The total goal is $6.5 million.
The Thursday morning meeting was at the Lumpkin Center on the Columbus State University main campus.
This year's campaign chair, CSU President Tim Mescon, was unable to attend due to a special-called meeting of the Board of Regents.
At this point last year, 34 percent of the goal was reached.
