Faculty & Staff Campaign


What is the Faculty & Staff Campaign?
It's not complicated.  It's a pledge to financially support the very institution where you love to come to work every day!

In Fund Year 2014-2015, a record-breaking 68% of Muhlenberg employees made a gift to The Muhlenberg Fund, and the Faculty & Staff Campaign raised nearly $140,000, compared to the $96,805 raised from 2013-2014.  Additionally, 28 departments achieved 100% participation, which is four more than the previous year.   This level of participation is commendable and certainly something to be proud of!

Why is Participation Important?

Your gift to The Muhlenberg Fund has a direct impact on the College's ability to respond to the pressing needs of our students and the campus community, including financial aid, student and faculty research, physical plant improvements, and other areas.  In addition, your participation in the Faculty & Staff Campaign sends a message to other perspective donors that we highly value Muhlenberg College's contribution of qualified graduates to our global community. Finally, many gifts to the College are positively influenced by the knowledge that our employees are so supportive.

Where does my money go?

To see how The Muhlenberg Fund uses your hard-earned dollars, just look around you.

The Muhlenberg Fund supports our beautiful campus and modern facilities.  As we all know, the price of an education costs more than what our students actually pay - and The Muhlenberg Fund kicks in to help bridge the gap between financial aid and the total cost of tuition.

How can I support the Faculty and Staff Campaign?

As your 2015-2016 Faculty & Staff Campaign Committee, we ask you to support your College with an annual gift to The Muhlenberg Fund.

A gift doesn't need to break your bank account - even small gifts can generate remarkable returns.  If you contribute one hour per month of your salary to The Muhlenberg Fund, you will support worthy students, who benefit from your mentorship, and their families, who struggle to keep their sons and daughters in your classroom.

You can support the College by setting up a payroll deduction, making a gift online or dropping off your gift at the Development Office.  To make a payroll deduction or a one-time gift, please print this form and return it to Mark Mazer, director of advancement services.
