students looking engaged in learningGiving Tuesday is a reminder of the value of a financial contribution to student achievement.

Faculty and staff called on to give Tuesday

Next week marks Giving Tuesday, a global day of philanthropy when charities and supporters rally for favourite causes.

This year, Nov. 30 opens the University’s faculty and staff fundraising campaign, notes Chris Knack, co-ordinator of the Annual Giving Program.

“The faculty and staff at the University of Windsor are the heart of our campus,” he says. “They have a front-row seat to all the accomplishments and the progress we’re making towards our goal of providing a student-centered experience and developing spaces that inspire people to do their very best.”

He encourages employees to make a donation in support of student success and notes an added incentive: faculty and staff donors will be entered into a draw to win an extra vacation day.

“We’ll be suggesting specific ways to contribute in Tuesday’s edition of DailyNews,” says Knack. “Please remember our students when you are considering your charitable donations this season.”
