February 27, 2013 marks the start of the annual Faculty & Staff Campaign for UWF. Last fiscal year, with just 53% participation, employees contributed more than $170,000 to the 300 plus funds on campus including scholarships, programs, departments, and athletic teams. This year, our goal is to reach 60% participation in giving among all full-time, permanent employees by June 30th.

Employee gifts are critical to UWF every year because they...
• help UWF attract major gifts and grants
• help break cycles of poverty and open doors of opportunity for our students.
Enter to Win a Chick-fil-A Party! Any building or department that reaches 100% participation in giving by April 26 will win a Chick-fil-A party thanks to the 9 Mile Road Chick-fil-A. All buildings are automatically entered in this challenge, but departments must submit an entry form.
