The Fredonia College Foundation invites faculty and staff to join in the success of Nurturing Innovation: The Campaign for Fredonia by participating in the All-Campus Appeal.

Each year, members of the campus community show their support for their favorite programs, departments, or existing scholarships through generous donations. Campus support of the Nurturing Innovation campaign is clear, as nearly 40 percent have already chosen to contribute. This support not only demonstrates a commitment to the university but also influences outside support through the foundation, as well.

Employees have or will receive appeal materials in their campus mail very soon on how to contribute, either through payroll deduction or a one-time cash contribution. This year, faculty and staff are encouraged to make a payroll deduction online. Those who would prefer to utilize a hard-copy payroll deduction form may do so by contacting Associate Director Jennifer Michalek via email. Donations may also be sent to the Fredonia College Foundation at 272 Central Ave. Fredonia, NY 14063.

Donations to the Nurturing Innovation campaign will fund the future of Fredonia. Unrestricted gifts provide critical flexibility for Fredonia to meet pressing needs that may not be funded by state dollars, while designated contributions to scholarships, departments and programs assure access to quality education. Faculty research and experiential learning for students continue to set a Fredonia education apart, while support for learning spaces provides the newest technologies and updates for modern classrooms.

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. The foundation was established in 1964 during the presidency of Dr. Oscar A. Lanford to encourage and accept private gifts and endowments from individuals and corporations in order to support Fredonia students, faculty and programs.
