Coppin Family Campaign
Thank you to all faculty and staff who contributed to the 2017 Coppin Family Campaign. We raised close to $70,000 from 230 employees! Outstanding! This is one of the highest participations we’ve had to date! Our faculty and staff giving participation helps us when applying for grants or pursuing large donations. So your gift has a multiplier effect and will help bring in more donations.
Thanks again for helping us reach our goal and for all you do daily for our students. You make our university better, stronger, smarter—all in service to our students, their futures, and our community.
Stay tuned for our 2018 campaign coming this Fall.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Coppin Family Campaign?
It's the campus' annual faculty and staff fundraising campaign. Since 2007, gifts to the University from current faculty and staff have totaled over $300,000. This campaign challenges each of us to consider our personal support for Coppin, our students, and the ways we can make a difference above and beyond our daily work.
But I work here! Why would I give to my employer?
For the same reason many of us support our churches and other non-profit organizations—to help fulfill a need that you feel is important. Coppin has fulfilled an important need in the community for over 117 years and requires sustained support from those who believe in our mission. When we as faculty and staff make a gift, it strengthens the case for outside funders to support the University. It's hard to ask the community to support us if we don’t invest in ourselves. It starts with us.
How much am I being asked to give?
You determine your gift amount according to your own charitable interests, your personal willingness to give, and your financial capacity. No gift is too small. Every dollar and every employee counts.
How will my gift be used?
That is up to you! The most popular designation is the Annual Fund but there many other options to choose from. See the full list here.
