Faculty and Staff Campaign Concludes
Thank you to all who have participated in the 2010 Faculty and Staff Averett Society and Averett Fund Campaign! We truly have much to be thankful for during this holiday season - including the generous support that our faculty and staff have provided during this campaign.
We end the Faculty and Staff Campaign with more than 40 percent of our faculty and staff participating in charitable giving to the University - that is a 42 percent increase from last year! In addition, we have more than doubled the amount received each month through payroll deduction.
Each and every gift to the faculty and staff campaign has an incredible impact on the campus community. Our growing participation sends a message to major donors and organizations funding grants to the University. In addition, all gifts, regardless of size, provide valuable financial resources for the University. While we are able to do so much with major gifts, smaller annual gifts of $25, $50, and $100 provide funds for meals for athletic teams traveling, programming money in our residence halls, supplies for theatre department costumes, tutoring in the Galesi Student Success Center and so much more. These gifts combined help make up the more than $3 million in private gifts the University receives each year.
Even though we are ending the active portion of this giving campaign, we welcome any new gifts from our faculty and staff. Your participation will continue to help us grow our numbers throughout the entire year. We will periodically update the status of faculty and staff giving throughout the spring semester.
A special congratulations to those offices that reached 100 percent participation:
