2014/2015 Statewide Staff Fundraising Campaign
Linda Toth, IAM Technical Lead OIT, Statewide Staff
"To receive her 8th grade certificate, my grandmother rode a mule 8 miles into town from their farm for her exams. She never wavered in her certainty that I should pursue higher education. I was fortunate in that I had the grades for university studies, but no family resources to allow it. For that reason, the scholarships I was granted during my undergraduate years and those that I received during graduate studies meant all the world to me. I was the first college graduate in my extended family.
Now I work for an amazing university that is the focus for some of the most important studies and research of our times. I am proud to serve UA and grateful. Giving back so others may follow their dreams and talents is one way to say thanks for those who helped me along the way."
The essence of philanthropy is caring...
The annual Statewide Staff Giving Campaign is an opportunity to demonstrate that you care – you believe in our students, your work and the university’s mission. As the university faces financial challenges, philanthropic support is more important than ever. Our collective generosity demonstrates that we care – that we believe in our students, our work, and our mission.
The Statewide Staff Campaign is a tradition where participation is our most important goal. The campaign is only successful with your participation. We ask you to unite with fellow statewide staff members to show your commitment to the University of Alaska. Every dollar you donate is more than a gift; it is a statement that you care for and believe in UA.
Join in some fun activities during the month of April and look for opportunities to win prizes. All employees’ names will automatically be entered into a drawing for two Alaska Airlines vouchers. And, each time you participate in one of the activities, your name will be entered again. You may be entered up to six times!
New this year, every employee who makes a contribution to the University of Alaska during the current fiscal year will be invited to a pizza party in May.
The University of Alaska Foundation thanks all of our employees for everything you do to support UA.
Thank you for believing in UA!
Supporting the next generation of graduates
"My goals may take years, and it may be challenging at times, but this is the pathway that is preparing my entire future. I gratefully appreciate your contribution to help me turn my dreams into a success."
