Since 1978, Wright State University’s faculty, staff and retirees have invested in students through the annual Campus Scholarship and Innovation Campaign (CSIC). That long legacy of giving continues with this year’s CSIC, which launched April 1.
The theme of the 2019 campaign is “For Our Students.”
“Our faculty, staff and retirees have made Wright State the great university that it is today,” said Amy Jones, director of annual giving. “Their incredible generosity has left a lasting impact on our students. We’re counting on our Wright State family to step up once again and help support our students during this year’s CSIC.”
Like any previous CSIC, faculty, staff and retirees may choose among Wright State’s more than 1,900 scholarships and programs when designating their gifts.
“One hundred percent of their donations will go directly to the funds that they choose,” said Jones. “No administrative fees are ever taken out of their gifts.”
During last year’s CSIC, 49 percent of Wright State’s full-time faculty and staff participated, contributing nearly $475,000 to scholarships, programs, research and athletics. For the 2019 campaign, the goal is 50 percent participation among full-time faculty and staff.
For the second year in a row, CSIC donors will be recognized as members of The Flight Crew. “This is our way of honoring faculty and staff for their support of Wright State University and our students,” Jones said. “Last year, we welcomed 945 members to our inaugural class.”
As a token of appreciation, each member of The Flight Crew receives a lapel pin. “They can proudly wear their wings and show the world that they are helping our students soar,” said Jones.
