I wanted to share some information I have received on the wrap up of this year’s SECC campaign.  After looking at our numbers I am very proud of what UNCG has done in contributing to this year’s campaign. Our participation was at 36 percent, which is second highest in the university system with 877 donors contributing $190,644. While we did not reach our goal of $200,000, our contributions are far and above what the majority of our sister institutions have done. When you look at the size of our employee population and compare that to the ambitious campaign goal we set for ourselves, we have a lot to be proud of indeed. We had the fourth highest goal in the university system following UNC, NC State and UNC healthcare and far ahead of a few other larger (employee) institutions such as UNC Charlotte, Appalachian State and East Carolina.

Once again the contributions made by UNCG faculty and staff show how we feel about our community and the charities that provide services to those around us that are in need. It has been an honor to serve as chair for the 2015 campaign and I thank all those on the campaign committee and our great group of solicitors that worked so hard to made this happen.

Thank you for once again making the 2015 UNCG SECC a success.
