It’s safe to say GRU faculty and staff have more than risen to the challenge set forth by last year’s IGRU campaign.
So far, we have surpassed our goal of $325,000 by raising a total of $326,519.09 – a 24 percent increase in giving from this time last year.
On Friday, Sept. 11 faculty and staff celebrated that success with a sweet treat from Kona Ice. The Community portion of the campaign kicked off on Thursday, Sept. 17 with a luncheon at the Augusta Country Club and will continue through Oct. 9.
Still want to give? There are plenty of ways left to contribute. From now until the end of the IGRU campaign, you can still make a gift at giving.gru.edu/IGRU.
You can also give by joining us at one of the following events:
The IGRU kickoff last week was an overwhelming success, with first-day totals up 20 percent from last year.
After each kick off event, faculty and staff contributed $253,310.51 toward the $325,000 goal.
Special accolades go to the following five departments, which had 100 percent participation: the Dental Hygiene and Physician Assistant Programs in the College of Allied Health Sciences, the Maxwell Theatre, Career Services and the Office of Advancement.
Over the next several weeks, faculty and staff who have made an IGRU gift are encouraged to wear their blue IGRU T-shirts as part of IGRU T-Shirt Fridays, which will continue until Friday, Sept. 11.
