Students Share What Your Campus Campaign Gift Means to Them

With the 2015-2016 Campus Campaign, also known as Family Campaign, well underway, students share what your gifts mean to them. Students tell us your gifts help them become better leaders, inspire them to give back, allow them to have meaningful experiences inside and outside of the classroom, and help them achieve the dream of a college education.

Just as the family is often the core its members can turn to in need, the University community has always been there for our students. We who work firsthand with students see every day the challenges they face — and the difference financial support can make. Last year’s campaign yielded a record $950,213 with 20 departments achieving 100 percent participation. Since its inception, the campaign has raised more than $12 million.

Gifts from the University family are also a powerful endorsement that helps make the case with outside donors and alumni, demonstrating the commitment of those closest to the institution. That is why every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.

Campus Campaign representatives from across campus have been working to provide leadership and help coordinate special events within their areas. If you have not yet made a gift this Fiscal Year, you can do so here or fill out a form.

You can give an unrestricted gift to the Campus Campaign, which will go toward scholarships, or designate your gift to any area you choose. Gifts and pledges may be made by check, credit card or payroll deduction.

All gifts, in any amount and to any University area, made before June 30 count toward Campus Campaign. If you have made a gift and would like an “I give because” circle to display in your area, please contact Jenny Wensink at
