Thank you to our faculty and staff donors who have made a gift to Meredith this fiscal year. Our goal is 35% faculty and staff participation. We are now at 27% and need just 34 additional donors to make our goal.

I work here—why should I make a gift to my employer?
Faculty and staff participation percentage is a consideration for corporations and foundations when deciding whether to award Meredith College with funding for scholarships, professorships, or major college projects. Making a gift is another opportunity to demonstrate our own commitment to the importance of Meredith for our students and our colleagues.
What are ways I can designate my gift?
Most faculty and staff choose to give to The Meredith Fund in order to make an unrestricted gift (a gift not restricted for a specific purpose) to provide support for campus priorities. Unrestricted gifts enable the College to fund areas of critical need and take advantage of unexpected opportunities that will benefit our students and the College. If you would prefer that your gift be designated for another fund/area, simply note your preference when making your gift.
How much should I give?
Any amount that feels comfortable for you. Participation is truly our number one goal each year. Every gift will make a difference.
What is payroll deduction?
Payroll deduction is one of the most convenient and popular ways to give to Meredith. It allows you to make an annual pledge by having a certain amount deducted each paycheck. When completing the payroll deduction form, you specify the amount you would like automatically deducted from each paycheck, the start date, and where your support should be designated. You can have an amount deducted until further notice or until a specific total has been reached. You can complete a payroll deduction form by clicking here.
Can I give my gift to more than one area?
Absolutely! When making your gift, identify the areas/fund and the amount you wish to give to each.
What if I have additional questions regarding the Meredith Faculty and Staff Giving Initiative?
Please contact Jean Gambrill, assistant director of The Meredith Fund, at firstname.lastname@example.org or x8392.
