Faculty & Staff Campaign – FAQs

Faculty Staff Campaign

The Northwest Florida State College Foundation plays a significant role in the development of the College as a major educational, cultural and economic resource. The Foundation assists in the fundraising efforts of the College and ensures that the funds received are securely allocated to the specified project.

The Faculty & Staff Campaign is an annual fundraising effort that provides all NWFSC employees an opportunity to support their area of choice at Northwest Florida State College. Annual Fund contributions provide an important source of revenue to our programs, departments and campuses.

Yes! Success in the Annual Fund is measured through the percentage of participation. The ultimate goal for the Faculty & Staff Campaign is to send a positive message to alumni and other constituents, the emphasis is on participation. Therefore, we welcome gifts of any size. The end result is a substantial source of revenue which is used to enhance projects and programs campus-wide.

Yes. Gifts may be restricted to an already existing foundation annual fund or endowed account. This includes your department or special program. There are hundreds of funds to choose from.

A one-time gift can be made by cash, check or credit card. Cash and checks may be dropped off during business hours or mailed to the Foundation Office. Credit card payments can be made online by using our new & improved online giving platform. Employee Raider Club memberships may be purchased here as well!

Full-time employees may choose payroll deduction and make their gift in small payments spread throughout the year.

All payroll deductions for the Faculty & Staff Campaign will be effective in the October 31, 2020 payroll or your first payroll following receipt and processing your Payroll Deduction Form. The amount deducted will vary with the amount of the gift contributed and the number of paychecks an employee receives each year.

Thank you for your generosity! Your gift is greatly appreciated. If your gift or pledge is received July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021, it will be counted towards the 2020-2021 Faculty & Staff Campaign. All gifts and pledges prior to July 1, 2020 —including payroll deductions started during last year’s campaign—have been counted in the 2019-2020 Campaign. If you currently give through payroll deduction and wish to continue, please complete the Payroll Deduction Form and select “Yes” to the first question: “Would you like to maintain your current payroll deduction contributions, with no changes?”

We appreciate the support of our faculty and staff in the United Way Campaign. However, gifts made towards United Way cannot be counted in the Faculty & Staff Campaign. We understand it may be difficult to participate in two philanthropic campaigns, but highly encourage you to make a donation to the Faculty & Staff Campaign!
