Express Your Confidence in AHS


Dear colleagues,

I’m excited to kick off the 2021 AHS Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign today!

Today or at some point over the next three weeks, I hope you will express your confidence in AHS, our mission and each other and donate to an AHS gift fund.

As in recent years, we’ll be centering this campaign around Giving Tuesday (Nov. 30) and tracking our progress via the university’s Giving Tuesday website. The website is already live and ready to accept your donations!

Here are two incentives to encourage your participation in this year’s campaign:

  • Help AHS reach 75 GivingTuesday Donors. I will donate $2,000 when 75 individuals make a donation in any amount to an AHS gift fund.
  • The department with the highest faculty and staff participation percentage and the department with the largest number of faculty and staff donors will each receive a $500 prize to be used for a departmental celebration.

I’d like to recognize and thank the 2021 AHS Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign Champions:

Leah Lebowicz (BHIS)
Fabricio Balcazar (DHD)
Whitney Harris (KN)
Amy McNeil (KN)
Jo Wagner (KN)
Gail Fisher (OT)
Gay Girolami (PT)

They will be in touch with you throughout the campaign before it ends on Dec. 3 to share additional details and update you on our progress toward our goal of 75 donors.

If you have any questions, please contact your department champion or Kristen Kepnick.

Happy (Thanks)giving!
