TODAY is the last day to participate in the University Family 2023 Campaign! Support Wilkes through payroll deductions before it’s too late!

As Wilkes faculty and staff members, we are one of the University’s greatest advocates, actively supporting our mission, promoting our values and strengthening the University community. Each aspect of the work we do supports the reason we are all here — our students. Through the annual University Family campaign, we can play an even larger role in the life of the University and more importantly, in the lives of our students.

We invite you to participate in the 2024 University Family campaign by making a gift to an area on campus that resonates with you the most. If you are unsure where to give, many donors choose to contribute to the Wilkes Fund. The Wilkes Fund provides flexible support for the University to address our evolving, greatest needs and has the largest impact on the everyday Wilkes experience for students. No matter what, every gift of every kind helps Wilkes continue to thrive.

In addition to choosing your gift designation, you may also choose the way in which you’d like to make your gift. Payroll deduction is one of the most convenient ways to contribute, with a specified amount deducted from each paycheck throughout the fiscal year. You may also make a pledge and pay it off at a later date — whatever works best for you!

To participate in the 2024 University Family campaign, please click here. The deadline to participate is TODAY, May 19. The more people who choose to give, the greater the collective impact will be. Thank you for believing in our work enough to invest in it yourself!
