Combined Workplace Giving Campaign Raises
More than $17,500 for Local Organizations
|The Combined Giving Campaign Turkey grows more colorful thanks to the generosity of Bryn Mawr faculty and staff.
Community organizations and agencies that serve the population and environment of the Delaware Valley will get a boost from Bryn Mawr faculty and staff members next year, thanks to their donations to the 2006-07 Combined Workplace Giving Campaign. The final tally of gifts reached totaled $17,512.18, and the funds will be distributed as follows:
AIDS Fund: $527
Bread and Roses: $2,840
Environmental Fund: $1,295
United Way: $11,080.08
Womens Way: $1,770.10
Although the Campaign fell just short of its ambitious $20,000 goal, the Campaign Committee was happy with the amount raised, about 88 percent of the goal. This year's donation total of $17,512.18 surpassed those of all previous years except last year, when giving partners also set aside funds for Hurricane Katrina relief and the campaign raised $20,001. Gifts in 2003-04 totaled $14,263; the 2004-05 total was $15,990.
"There was a little peak last year that was probably associated with Katrina giving," said committee member Tracy Youells, "but the general trend in campaign gifts seems to be up. The faculty and staff of Bryn Mawr continue to be committed to making the world a better place for all of us. And we're already looking forward to what can be accomplished in next year's campaign."
All donors to the campaign are automatically entered into a drawing for $25 Strawbridge gift cards. Four gift cards are awarded to first-time donors, and four gift cards are awarded to donors who have given in previous years. This year's winners will receive their gift cards in campus mail.
