It is the time of year that faculty and staff at SUNY Fredonia will begin receiving information in their campus mail on how to contribute to scholarships, or to endowments that benefit their favorite departments and programs.

Through the annual All-Campus Appeal, the Fredonia College Foundation makes a special effort to draw in needed support from faculty and staff to help maintain and expand SUNY Fredonia's excellence.

Employees will receive information in their campus mail on how to contribute...whether it is through payroll deduction or cash contribution.

The annual "All-Campus Appeal" is coordinated with other fundraising activities of the Fredonia College Foundation, which reaches out to parents, alumni, businesses and foundations, as well as the community at large, to support the college. The coordinator of the campaign is Timothy Murphy, director of development.

All faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in the appeal through payroll deduction or with gifts of cash to the Fredonia College Foundation. Donors wishing to establish new endowments should contact the Foundation Office at extension 3321.

"By contributing to the All-Campus Appeal," President Virginia S. Horvath said, "faculty and staff enrich the academic quality, programs, and scholarship opportunities at Fredonia."

"In many cases, scholarships generated by gifts to the All-Campus Appeal and other appeal efforts to alumni, businesses, foundations and ‘friends’ of Fredonia change the future for students and families struggling to meet the cost of education," Dr. Horvath said.

About the Fredonia College Foundation

The Fredonia College Foundation is a private, non-profit corporation that exists solely to support the university. Gifts to the foundation provide the necessary funds for scholarships and other initiatives--such as library resources, equipment, exhibitions and performances--that state resources can no longer support at SUNY Fredonia.

The Fredonia College Foundation, Inc., was founded in 1964 during the presidency of Oscar A. Lanford to encourage and accept private gifts and endowments from individuals and corporations in order to support the students, faculty, and programs of the State University of New York at Fredonia.
