A Message from the Campaign Chair
Dear Faculty and Staff,
Tomorrow, October 1st, marks the start of the 2015 CUNY Campaign for Voluntary Charitable Giving. This will be my first CUNY Campaign and I am excited to lead this year's effort at Bronx Community College (BCC).
The CUNY Campaign supports the delivery of services that help the thousands of our friends and neighbors across the city who are in need. CUNY faculty and staff, especially those at BCC, have always responded generously to this annual call for help.
Thanks to last year's unprecedented level of support, BCC received the 2014 CUNY Campaign Top Achiever for Community Colleges award for raising over $34,000! Your generosity surpassed everyone's expectations and provided BCC students and hundreds of charitable organizations with the resources they need.
As the 2015 CUNY Campaign begins, I am counting on each of you to help BCC make history by surpassing our new goals to raise $40,000 and have 70% campus participation. By giving through payroll deductions or one-time contributions, you can support any of the several hundred worthy causes, including our own:
- BCC Foundation - Student Emergency Fund – Code #13180
Funds BCC's greatest needs including general scholarships, textbooks, and transportation that aid in student success.
- BCC Early Childhood Center – Code #14209
Funds programming in the Center which provides a caring, nurturing environment for our students and their children.
Whether you choose to support BCC, other charitable organizations or both, you can play a role in helping us reach our ambitious, but achievable goals. Your payroll deductions of $1 or $100, or one-time gifts of $25 or $2,500, will make a difference – every dollar counts! Now through December 30th, Campaign Captains in your division will be contacting you to make your pledges. Let's come together and give - BCC can do it again!
For more information, please follow this link to the CUNY Campaign website. When you contribute, do not forget to include the appropriate code numbers that will direct your dollars to Bronx Community College.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Now let's have a great CUNY Campaign!
