Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign to Launch in January
The annual faculty and staff giving campaign will kick off next semester with a celebratory luncheon at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 24, in Cleary Family Auditorium.
This year’s co-chairs, Clair Smith, associate professor of economics, and Jill Rathbun, executive assistant in the Office of Financial Affairs, hope to help the Annual Fund raise more than $80,000 in donations from over 250 College employees. The Annual Fund supports scholarships, individual schools, athletic programs, Lavery Library, and student life.
In 2016, 28.5 percent of staff and faculty—237 employees—made gifts to the fund, raising $76,312. Both Smith and Rathbun hope to exceed the number of employees who are donors, which has topped 200 two years in a row.
Stay tuned after the New Year for more details about the luncheon and annual campaign.
