Combined Workplace Giving Campaign 2006-07 Update
The College's eighth annual Combined Workplace Giving Campaign began Wednesday, Oct. 25, and the goal for this year's campaign is to repeat our total from last year of $20,000. As of Wednesday, Nov. 15, a total of $5,410 has been pledged to the campaign.
The Giving Turkey pictured to the right represents the campaign's progress: so far one-quarter of the feathers are brightly colored. The closer the campaign gets to its goal, the more colorful the turkey will become. Campaign organizers hope to display a fully feathered turkey in time for Thanksgiving, and ask donors to submit their forms to the Chief Administrative Office by Wednesday, Nov. 22, Thanksgiving eve.
The organizations the campaign supports are the AIDS Fund, Bread and Roses Community Fund, the Environmental Fund for Pennsylvania, United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania and Womens Way. Donors may even earmark their donations for specific agencies within some of the organizations. Lists of specific agencies and more information can be found in the folders available at Benham Gateway, Campus Center, Canaday Library, the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, Human Resources, Ward and the cafeterias of Erdman, Haffner and Rhoads.
A PDF version of a fact sheet about the organizations can be downloaded here. And a PDF version of the donor form can be downloaded here.
All donors, regardless of the size of their gift, are eligible to be entered into a drawing for four $25 gift certificates from Strawbridge's. The College will also be giving away an additional four $25 gift certificates just for first-time givers.
Meeting the campaign goal will mean more than a colorful turkey, says campaign committee member Tracy Youells, production associate in Public Affairs. "The campus community's gifts can make a real difference for the organizations and agencies meeting the needs of our neighbors, our environment and our ideals."
