Frequently Asked Questions
A high faculty/staff giving percentage is an endorsement by employees that you support our mission to fund scholarships and programs. It is a valuable signal to potential donors that our own employees believe in supporting our students.
Employees have the option to give to many scholarship and special program funds. If you don’t have a particular scholarship or program you support, choose Foundation General Scholarship, which awards scholarships to the most underserved students who often don’t qualify for other scholarships. This includes Single Parent, Head of Household, Undocumented or International Students. Or choose Greatest Needs Fund, which helps students in dire situations, like when COVID funding was needed for emergency grants.
Each gift – no matter how big or how small – is important because it increases participation rate. Whatever amount, your gift shows that you believe in the fund that you have chosen to support. There are many funds that receive a large number of “small” gifts and those really add up!
