We know Columbia students have been struggling financially to stay in school. So, in 2009, college advisor, Wayne Tukes, inspired a few staff members to help create an exciting scholarship initiative. Do you know Richard or Mark from Building Services? They were so excited by Wayne’s idea they helped create a flyer to pass the word & pass the jar!
Now we have the very first Columbia Faculty & Staff Scholarship Initiative. It comes from staff, from faculty, from the heart! Our pledge is that every dollar donated goes directly to Columbia students!
Scholarship Columbia makes every penny count: faculty/staff donations are matched 1:1, 1:2 if you are an alumnus. Here’s how the match works:
$10 contributed by staff or faculty becomes $20
$10 contributed by faculty or staff and an alum becomes $30
Pledge $5 a paycheck for a year as staff or faculty becomes $240
Pledge $5 a paycheck for a year as faculty/staff and alum becomes $360
Pledge $10 a paycheck for 4 years as staff or faculty, a student receives $1920
Pledge $10 a paycheck for 4 years as faculty / staff & an alum, a student receives $2880
In these challenging times, we want to pull together to help our students. We want to show them how much their education means to us. Please make your donation today!
