Humboldt State is launching a new campaign this year to recognize the philanthropy of staff, faculty, and retired employees who make a difference on campus, in our community, and around the world.
The campaign will last through the end of October.
“Over the next four weeks, we will celebrate how the HSU community gives back to students and University programs, as well as to an array of personally meaningful causes,” HSU President Lisa Rossbacher said. “I’m excited about this opportunity to pause and think about why I choose to give and how my giving is making an impact.”
The campaign’s emphasis will change weekly.
*Week 1: Giving to HSU programs. Forms will be distributed so that staff and faculty who are interested can choose to make a contribution to the campus program, fund, or department of their choice
*Week 2: Making a difference off campus. Forms for the State Employee “Our Promise” campaign will be distributed. This program suggests ways to donate to causes. This initiative has been ongoing since 1957, and last year 36,000 state employees gave $6.5 million.
*Week 3: Empowering faculty and staff to participate in philanthropy. HSU’s Office of Philanthropy will be hosting workshops on how to raise money and work with donors.
*Week 4: Telling HSU Cares story. There will be information on the many ways contributions are helping both on and off campus.
