2010 Employee Giving Campaign

November 16, 2010

Dear ETSU Faculty and Staff,

The Employee Giving Campaign has come to a conclusion for the year—and what a grand conclusion it turned out to be!  During tough economic times, the ETSU community rallied around a good cause, providing more than $75,000 for our neighbors in need. Over 100 percent of our goal amount was achieved during the campaign, and right on time.

Thank you for your generosity and for demonstrating your concern for others by bringing our campaign to a successful conclusion.

Sincerely,

Paul E. Stanton, Jr.

President

Dear ETSU Colleague,

Many thanks to all East Tennessee State University faculty, staff, students, retirees, and friends who generously give of their time, energy, and financial resources to make Tennessee a great place to call home. Your abundance in giving during the 2009-2010 University Giving Campaign provided more than $79,000 to agencies that serve those in need, including designated charities of the United Ways of Tennessee, Community Shares, Community Health Charities, and eleven Independent Charitable Organizations.

Our 2010-2011 University Giving Campaign goal is $75,000. We acknowledge that many of us are still concerned by the unprecedented economic challenges facing our country; however, with so many needs in our area continually reported, it is our hope that our campus community will continue the tradition of giving and that you will make a contribution. We ask that you consider becoming or repeating as a “Fair Share Giver” by dedicating one hour’s pay per month to the campaign. You can contact the Office of Human Resources, 423-439-5825, to determine your hourly pay.

As in years past, campaign materials are being distributed in the accompanying attachment and on the web, http://www.etsu.edu/humanres/services/givingcampaign.aspx. On the site, you’ll find a list of TBR-approved charitable organizations and the pledge form. The pledge form can be easily accessed by clicking the bottom of any page of the attachment. Once you’ve completed the pledge form, print and sign all forms and return them to the Office of Human Resources at Box 70564. Retain the donor copy for your personal records.

This year’s campaign, which continues through Monday, November 15th, features the theme “Caring for Tennessee and beyond…...” At ETSU, it is our faculty, staff, students, retirees, and friends who join together every day to make our campus great. We trust that you, the members of our University Community, will join with us this year as we seek to make a difference through a successful Giving Campaign.

Sincerely,

Paul E. Stanton, Jr., President
Sue Russell, Campaign Chair
Trish Stafford, Campaign Co-Chair
