University of Arkansas at Little Rock employees gave more than ever during the university’s 2016 annual giving campaign.
The $362,702 donated broke the 2015 campaign total, $347,000, by more than $16,000, making 2016 the largest amount of money raised during the university’s employee giving campaign.
High-employee giving resonates with outside donors and demonstrates the strong philanthropic culture at UA Little Rock, said Derek Boyce, director of annual giving and alumni membership in theOffice of Alumni and Development.
“It’s important to let our community know that our faculty and staff are invested in UA Little Rock,” Boyce said. “The campus campaign is a measure of that support, and we have been blessed by the awesome support of our faculty and staff. The campus campaign keeps outdoing itself year after year. These results speak volumes to our alumni, donors, and community partners.”
The campaign also provides an important revenue stream to the university’s annual fund.Nearly 700 UA Little Rock employees participated in the campaign, and 19 departments had a 100 percent employee giving rate.
