Giving is a personal decision and our individual reasons for contributing are many. But we have at least one common purpose – to support the reason we’re all here – the students.
As faculty and staff members, we have the privilege of working closely with students. Gifts from employees are an investment in our students’ potential. As you may know, tuition and state funding do not cover the entire cost to educate a student. Private gifts help by supporting resources and opportunities such as new technology and scholarships.
A high employee giving percentage is an endorsement by employees that the college's students are deserving of their financial investment. Faculty and staff participation also plays a major role in external rankings and the college's overall reputation; factors which influence funding by foundations and corporations.
Ultimately, your participation is a vote of confidence in SUNY Empire and its future. Sign up today for payroll contribution and join fellow colleagues, alumni and friends in transforming the lives of our students with your support of The Fund for SUNY Empire. If you would like to support a specific restricted designation please note your preference (i.e., name of the scholarship you would like your gift directed to) in the comment section below or contact Stephanie Corp, Director of the Fund For SUNY Empire at Stephanie.Corp@esc.edu or 518-587-2100 ext. 2773 to discuss further.
