30 Days of Giving Campaign for Staff and Faculty

A rainbow banner that says, "30 days of giving".

Dear Colleagues,

Our 30 Days of Giving Campaign for Staff and Faculty was a success, and I am so grateful to all who participated. We raised more than $512,000 from 120 staff and faculty donors, which is an incredible accomplishment.

We more than doubled our collective support over last year’s campaign!

A special shout-out to the Department of Linguistics, which had the most participation, and to the Department for the Study of Religion for a close second place. Kudos to you all.

Congratulations to our prize winners:

  • Michael Godwin, Department of Near & Middle Eastern Civilizations
  • Matt Hintsa, Department of Computer Science
  • Rebecca Jockusch, Department of Chemistry
  • Emily Wilson, Office of Advancement

And in case you forgot, I am biking one kilometre for every colleague who donated. I am looking forward to 120 extra kilometres of cycling this spring.

Although the 30 Days of Giving campaign is over, you can deepen your support for Arts & Science initiatives that are meaningful to you, anytime.

Your thoughtful and philanthropic support will have a tangible impact on our outstanding students, teaching initiatives and research projects at Arts & Science.

Explore Giving

Together, we can have a transformative impact — on this generation, and the next.

All my best,

Dean Melanie Woodin with a pink bike helmet.
