Every year, the University of Portland strives to increase its number of donors in order to sustain needed philanthropy and build a pipeline of support for years to come. Last year we reached our highest number of donors with over 7,500 people making a gift to UP. With just one week left for the All Hands On Deck Campaign— there is still plenty of time for faculty and staff to help out. The best part is that it will feel great!
From now until May 7, as part of the campaign, those closest to UP—students, parents, faculty, and staff—are being asked to consider their own philanthropy and what type of giving would make them feel good. Is it giving to a scholarship for a student? Donating to support research? Could it be for a department to help accomplish a major goal? Is there a place or program on campus that could use some extra help?
As the campaign video shares, UP is our home—where we live, pray, play, and work. By giving from the heart, faculty and staff can and support UP students, projects, programs, and spaces that are personally meaningful to them.
For giving options, faculty and staff can visit the giving website and select what will work best for them. These options include:
- Signing up for payroll renewal
- Making a recurring gift through a credit card
- Giving a one-time online gift
- Supporting the Rowing Team’s crowdfunding efforts for the lower campus
- Dropping a gift off at the Development office
