The Partners in Giving Campaign officially kicked off on October 12th. The packets containing the pledge forms have been distributed to your departmental campaign coordinator and they should be delivered to you soon. Please don’t let this get buried on your desktop. Give it your immediate attention.
CALS places emphasis on participation, so please consider a contribution of some size to the charity of your choice. I know that the furloughs that we’re all having to endure provides an excuse to not participate, but stop and consider what these agencies are doing to those less fortunate.
The campaign allows for you to give on-line by credit card. If you choose this approach, please let your department coordinator know that you’ve contributed in this way, because we want to track the participation rate for each unit. And all contributors have an opportunity to attend the UW women’s basketball game against Iowa on February 28th. You will need to get a coupon from your coordinator to get those tickets.
Thanks in advance for you generosity.
Frank Kooistra, Associate Dean
