Thank you for giving to the fall Helping Students Thrive Faculty and Staff Campaign

Dear Oglethorpe Community,

With our fall Helping Students Thrive Faculty and Staff Campaign now completed, I wanted to extend a huge thanks to those who gave. Every gift, no matter the size or the fund, will help Oglethorpe continue to provide enriching experiences and maintain our high academic standards – thank you!

After just three weeks, we are now at 75 donors for a faculty and staff participation rate of 18.7%. That’s a good start toward full participation by the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 2024. Those of you who stepped forward and gave during this fall campaign are providing important leadership and sending the message to the foundations and other funding agencies that you believe in your institution and that Oglethorpe is worth the investment.

For those of you who were not able to join us during this fall effort, we have multiple upcoming opportunities for you to participate, show your Petrel Pride, and get us closer to 100% participation.

Be sure to save the date for #GivingTuesday 2023 on Tuesday, November 28, and OU Giving Day 2024 on Wednesday, February 14, 2024! On both days, you’ll have opportunities to give back to Oglethorpe and show that you believe in and support this university. We will also have another push during spring semester, so keep an eye out for those messages from the Advancement team.

Once again, thank you to each of you for your dedication to Oglethorpe in the classroom and across the campus. Your commitment to this university, our students, your fellow faculty and staff members, and our broader community is tremendous, and I see it every day.

Thank you for all the ways you are making Oglethorpe an incredible university.

Nescit cedere!
