The Power of Participation Faculty and Staff Campaign

Our students need you

As a faculty or staff member here, you already give a lot. Your investment of time and talent pays many dividends for the CSS community and helps our students become the people they want to be.

But to keep doing this, we need you to step up again.

Every year, the Faculty/Staff Campaign raises money to help financially support traditional and GEO students through the Circle of Excellence Awards — scholarships for students with financial needs.

That means every dollar you donate goes directly to helping another student afford a CSS education or supporting another CSS cause of your choice.

Last year, 35 percent of faculty and staff participated in the campaign. But we can do better. Think of how many more students we can help if we can get that number to 100 percent.

How to give

Payroll deduction remains the most popular choice for faculty and staff to participate in the campaign. This option allows you to spread your pledge over twelve months (twenty-four pay periods) starting in January and ending in December 2015. You can also support the campaign with a check or cash gift. All by just clicking here.

And remember, no donation is too small.
