|As we concluded our celebration of Founders Day 2017 and approach the 150th anniversary of our founding, we are proud to present the new Faculty and Staff 1867 Campaign. Participation and support of our Faculty and Staff members demostrates our level and committment to Bronco Pride in the amazing accomplishments of the past 150 years while helping to establish a strong foundation for our continued progress.
In recognition of the Sesquicentennial, we have designated seven "Giving Societies," one for each of our founders, and have established four categories of recognition for unit-level participation. Giving Society designations and unit-level participation will be based on new gifts beginning April 20, 2017. Gifts may also be supplemented with a monthly payroll deduction for the purposes of joining a Giving Society. All donations are tax deductible and may be designated for scholarship, faculty-staff development, or other priorities. The Giving Societies and Unit Level Recognitions are:
|Annual Contribution||Giving Societies||Payroll Deduction (12 months)|
|$10,000 +||Simmons Society||$833.34+|
|$5,000 - $9,999||Grange Guild||$416.67+|
