Woohoo to our employees! The payroll contribution campaign kicked off in August and although we lost 14 payroll contributors to retirement, the money is about the same as last year. We’re projecting about $16,000 in payroll contributions for scholarships and program support again this year. We have six new people who joined the marble apple club of $10/month and eight people who increased their contributions to $10/month.
The Foundation will also distribute apple pins to those who are donating anywhere from $5 to $9.99/month to any one fund.
The two goals were to raise the overall level of employee participation to 50% and raise monthly contribution to $10 per month. The breakdown is as follows: 21 administrators out of 37=56% participation (increase of 8%) with average gift of $30.40/month; 19 classified out of 146=13% participation (increase of 1%) with average gift of $14.63/month; 36 full-time faculty out of 94=38% participation (increase of 2%) with average gift of $10.75/month.
A special thank you to our part-time faculty who donate through payroll contributions. Four out of 210 have contributed in this manner over the last 12 months with an average gift of $5/month.
The overall participation rate among permanent employees is 27.4%. Please help us on our way to 50% participation. Click on [Donate] to donate through payroll contributions or a one-time year-end tax-deductible gift.
Thank you for your generosity. These contributions allow us to continue to provide much needed support to our students and staff on campus. You can change the fund you donate toward or the amount by completing the Payroll Contribution Form (Donate button above).
