Thank You for Your Support of the Faculty and Staff Appeal

From the Vice President for Institutional Advancement
Thank you so much for your heartwarming response to the 2010 Faculty and Staff Appeal! I am grateful for each and every gift received—no matter what the amount. Each gift is important. Each gift makes a difference to one of our students.

Last year, more than 500 of our colleagues supported this campaign by making a gift. We are proud to have one of the highest participation rates in the SUNY system—and that commitment speaks volumes to others. It says that you believe in our campus, our students, and our future.

If you haven’t made your gift yet, time is winding down to the end of the campaign. Please remember that you can make a one-time gift or use payroll deduction to join your colleagues in supporting our students.

New York State support becomes more tentative each year, yet the financial need of our students continues to grow. Scholarship support can—and in many cases does—decide whether or not a student attends college. It can literally change the future.

And so I thank each of you who has made a gift to the Faculty and Staff Campaign, and I encourage those who have not made a gift to do so. The campaign ends on May 3, so please complete the payroll deduction form and give your financial support to our students.

Thank you!
