Statewide Staff Giving Campaign April 1 - 30, 2015

The Statewide Staff Giving Campaign ends on Thursday, April 30.  With staff participation rates the highest they’ve been in five years, we have collectively demonstrated our generosity and that we care – that we believe in our students, our work, and our mission. However, the need is still great and we encourage your continued participation. The financial challenges we face as a university make philanthropic support more important than ever!

This year’s campaign has incorporated some fun activities. From the kick-off of the Soup-er Scholarship Feed to the nail biting silent Battle of the Good, Better, Best Dessert Auction. 

Please share what you BELIEVE in by visiting http://alaska.edu/foundation/staff_campaign/. Your responses serve as inspirations to us all. And by sharing, you earn a chance to win two Alaska Airlines vouchers.

Everyone who participates in the campaign through April 30 is invited to a pizza party in May.

Thank you for your continued support and participation!
