Faculty & Staff Are Showing the Love

G2G Campaign Update

As you know, the Give To Gators (G2G) Campaign is in full effect.

G2G Campaign Updates:

  • This week, two units reached 100% participation—the Offices of Study Abroad and Community Engagement & Service Learning.
  • As a campus, we’ve crossed 10% participation—only 90% left to go.

G2G is hosting a table in the Academic Building’s Mural Area from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 2. Faculty and staff can learn more about the campaign, make pledges or gifts, and pick up a G2G T-shirt.  No gift is required to get a T-shirt, but it’s limited to one per employee and only available while supplies last.

Remember, where and how much to give is your choice. Popular funds include Food for Change Market, UHD’s General Scholarship Fund, and campus favorites—the Library Excellence Fund and the IT Scholarship Fund. Joining the lineup is the new Determined Gator Fund.

The G2G Campaign runs through March 31.
