Staff/Faculty Campaign

Employee Participation
If there is one thing that all employees at Aquinas College can agree upon, it is that everything we do is ultimately for the incredibly bright and worthy students. Whether it's the food we provide in the Wege Cafeteria, the safety that is assured through the Campus Safety office, the vitality that we support through the Health and Wellness Center, or the dedicated, passionate teaching that faculty provides, in the end we do it for the students. To continue to provide the exceptional Catholic liberal arts education that we can be proud of, the Aquinas Fund works with parents, alumni, friends, neighbors, and employees to raise money to go toward this top-notch education. If you have already given, we cannot thank you enough!  Your gift enables us to continue to provide scholarships and assistance to those students. If you have not yet gotten involved, we would like to encourage your participation during the month of March.
Whether it's a $5 monthly payroll deduct, or something much larger, the participation of all faculty and staff making a tax deductive gift to the College is immensely important. We certainly understand that giving is a personal decision and our individual reasons for contributing are many. But, we have at least one common purpose - to support the reason we're all here - the students. We get to see firsthand how our gifts can make a different in a program or in the life of a student.

"I have given to the Aquinas Fund for years through payroll deduction. I appreciate the fact that the Aquinas Fund is dedicated to student scholarships. As a parent of two children, I am blessed to receive tuition remission as a benefit of being a full-time employee. I know that many families struggle with paying for college, and I have often heard from parents visiting campus with their children that 'every little bit helps.' My donation is certainly not going to cover a lot, but it is my attempt to do my 'little bit.'"


- Penny Avery, Ph.D.


“I am a firm believer in supporting a cause that makes a difference and that is why I give to the Aquinas Fund. I have been the women’s basketball coach for 17 years and each year I continue to marvel at the wonderful opportunity Aquinas College provides for each and every student on campus. Our college provides a close knit community of students, faculty and staff committed to making a difference in the world. I see it every day! You can be confident that your contributions to the Aquinas fund will continue to lay the foundation for the future.”


- Coach Linda Nash



It's your gift, it's your choice.
You can choose to designate your gift to an area of the College that is of interest to you. And though the unrestricted account remains the area of greatest need, every gift is an investment in Aquinas College.

You can also choose how you would like to give - by check, online, or via payroll deduct. All gifts are tax deductible.
