Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign

 

Q: What percentage of SU's employees participated in the 2015-2016 giving campaign?

A: Participation is always the primary focus of the Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign, and as the final numbers reveal, SU's employees came through in a big way during the recently concluded fiscal year 2016. More than one out of every three faculty and staff-36 percent to be precise-made a contribution to the campaign during FY16. 

The three leading units of the university by participation rate were the Albers School of Business and Economics with 81 percent participating; the Arrupe House with 75 percent making a gift; and Human Resources and University Services at 74 percent. 

"Thank you for giving and showing your commitment to the university's mission," Ande Peterson, assistant director of development in the Office of Annual Giving, wrote to supporters. "Through your gifts SU continues to be a powerful force in the Seattle community and an agent of change in our students' lives." 

"This year's Faculty and Staff campaign was made possible by a number of colleagues across campus who volunteered their time and enthusiasm to rally support for scholarships and programs," Peterson continues.
