The 2014 Missouri Southern Faculty and Staff Campaign for the Southern Annual Fund kicks-off Friday, Feb. 28.

The campaign is a fundraising effort that offers an additional opportunity to help the students of Missouri Southern. Your gift can go to the Green and Gold Fund to meet urgent needs, or it can be designated to the area of your choice. Your gift makes a lasting impact regardless of the size or designation.

This year, each department will have a team leader who will be handing out forms over the next week.

“There is little doubt that the strength of Missouri Southern comes from you and your colleagues,” says Elisa Bryant, development officer. “With that in mind, we ask that you consider helping us reach our goal of having 200 faculty and staff give to the annual fund. Let’s top last year’s total of 155 participants.”

The two departments with the highest participation rate will have a pizza party at Gusano’s.
