A Letter from Trustees Campaign Chair Lorry Schrage

A Letter from Trustees Campaign Chair Lorry SchrageDear Brenau Faculty and Staff,

There are many reasons for Brenau´s forward momentum. Two of the most important are your good work, along with philanthropic support for the Campus Campaign. Whether you have been part of the Brenau community for many years or are new members this year, it is important for you to understand the importance of giving by our faculty and staff.

    • Scholarships are absolutely essential to our students in today´s economy. Gifts from faculty and staff directly support scholarships at Brenau.
    • Brenau seeks funding from foundations and other donors each year. These funders are impressed with your participation because it demonstrates that our faculty and staff support the university and take pride in being a part of its history.
  • Giving by faculty and staff encourages others to give also. We have the ability to influence students, alumni, parents and friends of Brenau to support our university, its programs and our students.

Last year 57% of Brenau faculty and staff participated in the Campus Campaign. This year we want to reach the goal of 100% participation campus-wide, and we cannot do this without your help. The size of the gift is not important – the fact that you give is important because you are saying that you believe in our university, believe in our students, and believe in our mission.

Thank you for your loyal support of Brenau.

Sincerely,
Lawrence (Lorry) B. Schrage
Chairman, 2012 Campus Campaign
Brenau University
