Charitable Giving Campaign

Filed Under: President's Post

MTSU employees again showed their True Blue spirit with a record $133,266.57 pledged during this year’s Employee Charitable Giving Campaign.

The pledge total represented 102.5% of the $130,000 goal, with 908 participants taking part in the annual tradition.

This campus-wide effort shows what it really means to be “True Blue.” The fact that we set another record for giving shows the caring nature of our faculty and staff and reflects a collective acknowledgement that it’s important to give back to this great community.

MTSU’s annual Charitable Giving Campaign is a monthlong effort by faculty and staff to support worthy causes. The campaign is fueled largely by monthly payroll deductions from employees over the next year but also allows one-time, lump-sum gifts at the donor’s discretion.

During the Oct. 1–Nov. 1 campaign, participants designated gifts to organizations from a list of 10 independent charities and three federated groups of charities, including Community Health Charities, Community Shares, and local United Way organizations.

MTSU Provost Mark Byrnes again presented the Provost Cup to Dean David Urban, whose Jennings A. Jones College of Business won the friendly competition between academic units for the seventh straight year. The cup is awarded to the college with the highest percentage of employee participation.

Urban, who currently chairs the board of directors for one of the campaign’s beneficiaries, the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, said that the funds MTSU employees contribute to charitable organizations help improve the health, education, and financial stability of those served by numerous nonprofit community service agencies in the area.

This year’s record campaign total surpassed last year’s pledged amount of $132,503.04.
