2012 Faculty/Staff ICARE Giving Campaign
Dear Pfeiffer Faculty and Staff:
We are pleased to announce the 2012-2013 ICARE Faculty and Staff Campaign, designed to enable each of us to actively participate in the improvement of not only our physical surroundings, but the overall experience that we are able to provide to our students.
Goal. Last year, 62 Pfeiffer faculty and staff (35%) gave a collective total of $37,357 to the Pfeiffer Fund, along with various other programming and capital projects. This year, our goal is to achieve at least a 50% giving percentage and $50,000 in funding to support the various programs and projects that are meaningful to us on the Misenheimer and Charlotte campuses.
Time Frame. A campaign committee made up of faculty and staff from each of our campuses will be in direct communication with you in the coming weeks. During that time, you will receive updates on our progress as a whole, along with departmental break-downs. Our goal is to complete the campaign by September 27, in conjunction with the “ICARE About Pfeiffer Because…” Homecoming weekend—so dubbed by a member of the Class of 2012 in honor of the meaningful academic and personal experiences had by our students, and in celebration of the ICARE (Curb Appeal and Restoration Enhancement) program’s progress over the past year.
What the Campaign will Support. Your gift can be designated to one or more of the following areas:
• ICARE Misenheimer Project
• ICARE Charlotte Project
• The Pfeiffer Fund—Help provide educational assistance to our students
• Restricted Giving—Direct your gift to the program or project fund of your choice
Thanking Our Board Chair. Dave McIlquham, Chair of the Board of Trustees, championed the ICARE campaign during his tenure as interim president. Prior to that time, Dave provided new mattresses for all the dormitory beds, and has made many significant gifts designed to improve the experience of our students both in and out of the classroom. His most recent gift came over the summer in the form of a $40,000 challenge designed to encourage others within the University family to increase their giving. Both the Trustees and the Alumni Board have actively accepted his challenge and for that we are extraordinarily grateful. Please join us in offering a note of thanks to Dave, which will be presented, along with the campaign results at the October 12 Board meeting. Visit www.pfeiffer.edu/fscampaign12 to submit your note to Dave online.
Celebration Event. Those who choose to participate in this campaign will be invited to a celebratory event in early October, and will be eligible for door prizes during this festive reception.
Enclosed you will find an employee payroll deduction form for your convenience—this may be completed and returned to the Advancement Office on the Misenheimer campus. Again, thank you for all you do to support Pfeiffer and our students each and every day.
