Annual Fund - Q&A
What and When? The 2012 Faculty and Staff Annual Fundbegins September 10, 2012 and ends October 19, 2012.
Why Participate? The Annual Fund is an important part of who we are and what we do. All of us work directly or indirectly for the students. Just think of the number of students in our classrooms and on campus who benefit from the scholarship support provided by the Stark State College Foundation. This campaign offers all of us the opportunity to make a financial investment in our students. Your participation in our major fund raising effort will provide student scholarship assistance.
What’s the Goal? With over 500 full-time employees, a gift of $4 each pay would raise $50,000. This is your invitation to make a difference, so please take a moment today to review the enclosed information and take action.
Where Does the Money Go? Over the past 14 years, the Stark State College Foundation has given nearly $1.3 million in scholarship funds to over 5,100 students. During the Fall 2011/Spring 2012 academic year, the Foundation funded $111,945 for student scholarships, College projects and instructional resources.
What is an Endowed Scholarship? This is a permanent charitable scholarship fund that is invested with a long‑term strategy in order to provide income into perpetuity without invading the principal.
What is Required to Establish An Endowed Scholarship? A tax-deductible donation of $5,000, payable over five years will establish an endowed scholarship in your name or a loved one’s name. This computes to $39 per pay for five years. Contact Jayne Sterner at Ext. 4416 for more information.
What is a Matching Gift? Your gift can be doubled or tripled if you or your spouse works for a company with a matching gift program. Submit your company’s matching gift form with your donation.
What Other questions Do you Have?If you have additional questions, please ask your leadership team member or Jayne Sterner.
