Faculty and staff give back to Seminole State

Thanks to overwhelming support from faculty and staff, the Foundation for Seminole State College's annual Blue & Gold Circle campaign exceeded its $40,000 goal by nearly 35 percent.

The campaign, which ran throughout the month of October, brought in $53,944 in payroll deductions and one-time gifts.

Overall, 198 Seminole State faculty and staff members contributed, resulting in a 24.8 percent employee participation rate and a seven percent increase in the average individual contribution. Of the donors:

  • Fifty-eight contributed at the $60 level.
  • Forty-one made donations ranging from $120 to $150.
  • Nineteen are current givers who generously increased their annual contribution.
  • Twenty-three are new contributors to the Blue & Gold Circle.

Titled "Seminole STATE of Mind," the 2010 campaign challenged employees to consider how their own states of mind can translate into student success. It also urged them to promote a "Seminole STATE of Mind" to others by contributing to one of the College's programs, scholarships or areas of greatest need.

The Foundation gave a Seminole State ID case to every College employee to encourage participation.

The Blue & Gold Circle is an annual donor club created specifically for Seminole State faculty and staff members who give back to the College. By contributing to the campaign, donors help create a supportive academic community that allows students to explore their interests and reach their potential.
