Dr. Schrader has approved a special incentive for departments that reach 100% participation in this year’s Campus Campaign. Each employee* of those 100% participating departments will receive a ½ day off of work!
This is a strong affirmation of the importance that Dr. Schrader places on the Campus Campaign. More and more students require financial assistance from Brenau to complete their education each year. Grants are becoming increasingly competitive as foundations are approached by numerous non-profits. It is imperative that each member of the Brenau faculty and staff step up and support our institution and our students by contributing to the Campus Campaign.
With this exciting new development, and the fact that Fall Break fell last week, we are extending the campaign to ensure everyone has a chance to participate. All gifts should be submitted to External Relations by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26.
Remember that you can designate your gift to the Annual Scholarship Fund, a department scholarship or initiative, or you may make an unrestricted gift for use wherever the need is greatest. A gift of any size is appreciated and will count towards your department’s participation – the important thing is to give!
The ½ day off incentive will be implemented via approval by individual department managers, like the current birthday ½ day incentive.
Please call Pam Fountain in External Relations at 770.718.5333 if you have questions regarding this information.

* The ½ day off incentive is open to full-time, three-fourths time and half-time employees in each department that reaches 100%. Part-time employees who make a gift to the Campus Campaign and work in a department that reaches 100% are also eligible for the ½ day off incentive.
