Faculty and Staff Combined Campaign Kickoff Set for Tuesday

10/14/2019 Employees

EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Oct. 14, 2019) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will have its 2019-20 Faculty and Staff Combined Campaign kickoff Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. is the keynote speaker for the event, which will be from noon - 1:30 p.m. at the Alumni-Foundation Event Center.

“Each year, our Aggie family is asked to invest in ourselves and others by making a contribution to N.C. A&T through the University Employees Campaign (UEC) and our community by giving to the State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC),” said Regetta Spearman, who serves as co-chairwoman of the campaign with April Cobb. “The 2019-20 Combined Campaign allows all faculty, staff, administrators and retirees the opportunity to financially support the university’s efforts.”

All gifts to N.C. A&T from university employees and retirees support the $85 million capital campaign The Power of Do: The Campaign for North Carolina A&T.

Spearman said this year’s fundraising goal is $450,000.

“The Faculty & Staff Combined Campaign had a goal in the 2018-19 fiscal year of $400,000: $345,000 to A&T through the UEC and $55,000 to the community through the SECC,” she said. “Our faculty, staff and retirees blew that goal out of the water with over $765,000 raised.”

Last year, there were 863 unique donors to the campaign, 188 of whom donated to both campaigns, representing 34% of all current faculty, staff and retirees, Spearman said.

Gifts to A&T through the UEC can be designated to any area on campus a donor desires, she said. Likewise, gifts to the SECC can be designated to any participating nonprofit.

“Your contributions will be an expression of confidence and support for the well-being of our university and extended community for years to come,” Spearman said.

The kickoff event will have a party atmosphere, featuring food, fun and prizes, Spearman said. Attendees are encouraged to wear Western-style attire in keeping with the theme, “Campaign Road: Give ‘Til We Reach Our Goal.”
