Campus Campaign

Every year, our BGSU family comes together to support our students through Campus Campaign.  BGSU is known for its commitment to helping students succeed both within and beyond the classroom. As today’s students face an increasingly complex and competitive world, it is imperative that BGSU continues to provide diverse activities, innovative academic programs, and a dynamic mix of learning opportunities to position our students as tomorrow’s leaders.

The BGSU Campus Campaign, a University-wide effort to support institutional initiatives, provides resources to engage, challenge and prepare students for a meaningful future. Campus Campaign has raised more than $8 million during the past nine years to benefit students, programs and initiatives. The campaign spans our fiscal year and includes any gifts made from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.

Chris Bullins
Dean of Students

First Gift to BGSU: I first gave to BGSU as part of the Campus Campaign in 2012 while I was still a graduate student. Even though my contribution was small, I wanted to help my colleagues reach our collective goal of having every employee within the department participate.

Why is it important to give back to BGSU?
As dean of students, I am honored to support BGSU and our students by giving back. In fact, I make it a personal goal to participate in the annual Campus Campaign. As a first-generation college student, I know how important scholarships were to my ability to attend college and to get an education. I believe I now have a personal responsibility to help remove financial barriers for others individuals so that they can pursue their life dreams and aspirations.

Your gift to the BGSU Campus Campaign contributes to the quality of education our students receive while sending a message to the wider community and prospective donors that faculty, staff, and retirees believe in Bowling Green State University. All gifts are important and very much appreciated, especially in today’s challenging times when the University is experiencing declining state support.

Make a gift by June 30 to become a part of the Campus Campaign – show that you believe in BGSU.

Be a Campus Campaign Volunteer

Campus Campaign would not be as successful as it has been without the many faculty and staff volunteers across our campuses that have spread the important message of giving back to their colleagues. These volunteers help share giving opportunities and the current greatest-need funds to the colleagues in their departments several times a year. Volunteers are accepted at any time and a brief training is provided. If you are interested in learning more about what being a Campus Campaign volunteer is all about, reach out to Sara Thompson at

What is Campus Campaign?

Campus Campaign is BGSU’s annual effort to encourage all faculty, staff and retirees to support the University.

How is Campus Campaign different from other fundraising efforts on campus?

Campus Campaign contributions are used internally for BGSU’s programs, projects and endowments. Other fundraising efforts on campus focus on external charities, like United Way. External fundraising efforts, like United Way, are separate from BGSU initiatives. Through Campus Campaign, you directly impact BGSU students.

When does Campus Campaign begin and end?

Campus Campaign is a year-round effort. Any gifts made during the current fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) count toward the Campus Campaign.

How many people - faculty, staff and retirees - actually support BGSU?

In recent years, participation has ranged from 40 to 50 percent.

How much do I have to give to be a part of the Campus Campaign?

Gifts of all amounts are welcome.

How do I contribute to the campaign?

Faculty and staff may contribute by check, credit card, payroll deduction or online.

Does my gift to join Falcon Club, ProMusica, Friends of the Library, WBGSU or Medici Circle count for the Campus Campaign?

Yes. Any gift to any BGSU Foundation fund counts toward Campus Campaign.

How will my gift be used?

100 percent of your gift goes to the fund you designate.

What are the deadlines to give?

To count for the current fiscal year’s campaign, a cash, check or credit card gift must be made by June 30. Gifts via payroll deduct should be made by May 28.
