Support from faculty and staff is vital to the university's success. 

It not only provides funding for vital programs, such as student scholarships, but it also demonstrates employee belief in our mission. That's important when the university seeks funding from foundations and corporations.

Faculty and staff can contribute as any other donor would by credit card online, by mailing a check, by a gift of securities or through a planned gift. They can also use payroll deduction, which provides an easy way to make a one-time or ongoing gift.

Set up your payroll deduction online.
