The 2015 Faculty and Staff Campaign
The theme for this year’s campaign is: Put Yourself in the Picture. UIS employees will have opportunities to show why they give to UIS, and UIS departments and programs will explain how involved donors can make a difference.
Each year, the month-long Faculty and Staff Campaign celebrates and encourages the giving of faculty and staff at UIS with events and promotions. The 2015 Campaign Council has begun planning next year’s event, so stay tuned for a great theme and lots of excitement.
This year’s campaign began with a fantastic Faculty and Staff Campaign Kickoff on Tuesday, March 3, where 22 departments and programs from around campus shared ways and why UIS employees can provide support to students. Here’s a gallery of a few photos. View hundreds more pictures from the event (UIS ID required). Thanks to everyone who shared pictures!
Next up: A special month-long encouragement to give–with prizes!
We’ve asked everyone who signed up for a table at the Kickoff to help us prepare a special appeal–one department or program each day–in which they highlight special giving opportunities and share ways they have used gift funds in the past. Each appeal will include a special opportunity or prize if you respond. We’ll be using Facebook and Campus Announcements to keep you posted about these opportunities, but you can always check back to our homepage for updates. Find a complete list here.
Questions about the Campaign?
For more information on the Campaign, please look over last year’s campaign brief: 2014-15 Faculty and Staff Campaign Brief.
In March, you’ll also be able to ask your closest Ambassador for information. The Ambassadors support the Campaign throughout the University, answering questions and offering information and inspiration.
In 2014, UIS Faculty and Staff Put Themselves into a Huge Picture of Giving
Thanks to UIS’ generous faculty and staff,the FY14 Summary of Success (pdf) proves that many UIS employees truly are treasures. Here’s what faculty and staff gave to last year:
- Where Employees Gave in FY14 – TOP FUNDS (pdf)
- Where UIS Employees Gave in Fiscal Year 2014 (pdf)
- Where UIS Employees Gave in Fiscal Year 2014 by dollar amount (pdf)
You can begin giving now: Put Yourself in the Picture of Giving!
Many of your colleagues have already joined the Campaign by making a gift to UIS. When you give, your gift will also count toward 2014-15 Faculty and Staff totals.
You can choose to support any area of campus—any college, department, or specific fund, and you can make the gift online, by check, or by payroll deduction.
Many UIS employees give to the areas of campus that most interest them. You might want to give to the UIS Landscape and Garden Fund, which provides support to keeping our campus beautiful. If you prefer to give to benefit students, you could also make a gift to the UIS Scholarship Fund or a particular scholarship that benefits students in a certain field.
