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:
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.
