Faculty/Staff Campaign 2018

Each of us has a passion. It may be related to family, work, friends, or other interests. The passion we share at Middle Georgia State every day helps make it a great place to work, learn and serve. Our gifts in support of its mission encourage others to recognize that MGA reaches far beyond its campus boundaries.

Each year, the Faculty and Staff Campaign encourages us to pause and take notice of the impact of private support on our University. With each campaign, there is an underlying reason for giving. Some of us give to support student scholarships. Others give to help enhance our classrooms and the quality of our programs. Or we give to support efforts that cannot be paid for with state funds. Whatever reason we choose to contribute, we all give because we genuinely care about the educational mission of Middle Georgia State University and the students we serve.

Many have made a commitment to this effort already, and we are extremely thankful! For those who are new to Middle Georgia or have not yet thought about making a gift, please consider participating in the 2018 Annual Faculty and Staff Campaign. Having a high percentage of faculty and staff members that endorse the university in this way says that we care about the institution and want to see it thrive. This commitment speaks volumes to our community, our donors and our students.

Our Goal for 2018 is $85,000.

You can help make a difference at MGA by supporting your passion in a variety of ways.

Remember, payroll deduction is the easiest form of giving.

  • $5 per month = $60 annual gift
  • $10 per month = $120 annual gift
  • $20 per month = $240 annual gift
  • $50 per month = $600 annual gift
  • $90 per month = $1,080 annual gift – A gift this size would qualify you as a member of the “President’s Circle.” 34 members of our faculty and staff were members last year. Click here to learn more.

Give to Greatness

Why do I give to the Foundation? So that a deserving undergraduate who receives a scholarship does not have to work and can concentrate on being a high-achieving student. I attended four different high schools and my senior guidance counselor apparently did not know me well enough to encourage me to apply for any scholarships. Fortunately, my parents helped with tuition and I found a part-time job to pay for "room and board." Unfortunately, my parents divorced and the tuition assistance ended abruptly. I stopped out and held two jobs in order to earn tuition and resume my studies. I know that high-potential students will benefit from Foundation scholarships.

I personally give to the Faculty/Staff Campaign because I feel I am investing in our future; giving back is a way of insuring that we are leaving a strong future for our community, state and nation. I also give because I enjoy making a difference in people’s lives, who otherwise might not be able to afford a college education. Both of our daughters were recipients of a scholarship while attending college and I personally know what a difference it made in their lives. Moreover, it is a great feeling you have when you give to help others.
