November 4 marked the beginning of UP’s annual Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign, running to Friday, December 11. During this time, the development office asks employees to make their annual gifts and pledge their support to the University. Last year, over 300 employees raised $148,000 for student scholarships, building projects like the Beauchamp Recreation and Wellness Center, athletics, and various programs such as Entrepreneur Scholars, fine arts, and the Moreau Center.
Faculty and Staff donations are among the most important gifts to UP. They send a powerful message to students, alumni, businesses, foundations, and friends of the University: that those closest to UP support its mission financially as well as professionally.
