Marshall University Family Campaign to run April 1-30

The Marshall University Foundation encourages faculty and staff to consider “giving today and every pay” by enrolling in payroll deduction throughout the month of April with the Marshall University Family Campaign.

During the month of April, faculty and staff can sign up for payroll deduction, offering them the opportunity to create a lasting impact through consistent, automated contributions. They can opt to allocate their contributions to a particular scholarship, program fund or the Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is vital for various university initiatives, particularly addressing its most pressing needs. Every commitment, regardless of amount, plays a pivotal role in shaping Marshall University’s future.

“The decision when and where to make a charitable donation is a very personal decision. A payroll deduction allows you to spread your gift out over the course of a year, so it’s automatic and easier on your budget,” said Griffin Talbott, senior director of the annual fund for the Marshall Foundation.

Enrolling this month will also count gifts as contributions to the university’s third annual Day of Giving. Scheduled for April 24 and 25, the Day of Giving invites the Marshall community to unite in creating a lasting impact on students and shaping the institution’s future. Last year, donations exceeded $62,000, and this year’s objective is to surpass that amount.

During the Marshall Foundation’s Gratitude Week last fall, Dr. Ed Bingham, professor of saxophone and jazz studies, had this to say about his years of giving through payroll deductions:

“I think it’s important to invest in your own career and the school you are working in. I dearly love Marshall and have been very happy working at this institution. I’d like to help any way I can and help support the programs that benefit the students.”
