This year, Northern Arizona University faculty and staff have set a new standard for philanthropic support. Nearly 900 of you—or more than 30 percent of university employees—have contributed to the Employee Giving Campaign.

This willingness to participate, to invest in the future of your institution, allows the university to support the growth of great students, outstanding faculty and excellent programs.

Your gift also is a meaningful act in another way: Over time, our collective willingness to participate in the Employee Giving Campaign has the potential to lift us all to great heights. It gives you a very real stake in shaping the future of the university and demonstrates how we truly are a community dedicated to a common mission.

As the campaign moves to a finish at the end of this month, there is still time to make a difference. Take a moment to consider the impact of participating—for the university, and especially for yourself.

To join the hundreds of your colleagues who already have given, please visit nau.edu/employee giving.

Thank you for supporting your university and for being the difference that matters in helping us carry out our student-centered mission.
