Why I Give Campaign

There are less than two weeks left in the Drexel University faculty and staff annual giving campaign, Why I Give, which ends on June 30. As in years past, participation is the key element to a successful campaign. Last year 36% of our faculty and staff gave back to the College of Medicine. The goal for this year is 40% participation. At this point, we have reached 19.5% participation. Thank you to everyone who has made a commitment and to the volunteers who are working to get their departments to 100%.

Payroll deduction is available to all Drexel employees. Payroll deductions can be stretched out over time for 12 monthly or 26 bi-weekly pay periods, but any period of time can be selected, including open-ended deductions.

All gifts to the College of Medicine received now through June 30, 2015, count toward the goal. Previous open-ended payroll deductions should still be in effect.

Additional Information
Contact Leah Cianfrani at 215.255.7347 or ljc56@drexel.edu if you need more information.
