Faculty and Staff Own the Next 50

Faculty & Staff Giving

Own the Next 50!

During this year’s annual campaign, we want to encourage you, fellow faculty and staff, to give to NSU in support of those things that are important to you – academic research, classroom instruction, student scholarships, and more.

In addition, every gift counts toward our participation goals, a key consideration of accrediting bodies and external funding sources. That's why it's twice as important to receive gifts of ANY amount from our faculty and staff.

But it’s more than that. Giving is your chance to say that you believe in the promise that NSU holds and the great things it offers to all of us that make up the university. That you believe in our students, values, and the work you and your co-workers do each and every day.

Please click on one of the links below to select your gift designation and amount. You may choose to split your gift conveniently through payroll deduction or choose from options presented on the online credit card site.

Why is the faculty and staff campaign so important? Contributions from current and retired faculty and staff provide funding for programs, departments, and scholarships at NSU.  Equally important is the strong message sent to those OUTSIDE the university community, announcing to alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and community partners that we support Nova Southeastern University and feel the university is worthy of their support.

Your gift can help support programs that will continue to strengthen NSU and help current faculty, staff and students achieve even greater success.  Many of you have made a commitment to this effort already in FY 14, and we are extremely thankful. For those of you who are new to NSU or who have not yet made a gift, please consider participating in the annual faculty and staff campaign.
