THE 2014 FACULTY and Staff Campaign is your opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to making UCF the best it can be, now and in the future, as well as to improving the lives of our students and making Central Florida a better place.

Every gift, regardless of the amount, helps UCF to transform the lives of our students and to advance the well-being of our Central Florida community. Thank you for making a contribution to this year’s Faculty and Staff Campaign — and for all that you do for UCF.

—John C. Hitt, President

Last year, UCF faculty and staff gave more than $2 million, a record for UCF, with a participation rate of approximately 23 percent and every unit of the university represented.

But we're setting our sights higher in 2014, particularly in terms of participation, with a goal of 1,450 donors. That's because the number of faculty and staff members who give says at least as much as the amount they give.

It says to our community, our peer institutions and, most importantly, our students that those of us who work here are deeply devoted to the success of our university. And it says to the alumni and friends on whose philathropic support we depend that we believe in UCF enough to give our own valuable resources — a very powerful argument for them to give as well.

But your gift to UCF is uniquely valuable in other ways too. As a faculty or staff member, you know this institution — and its particular needs — perhaps better than anyone, giving you the ability to offer your support in areas others may not even be aware of.

Please join us between Jan. 27 and Feb. 28 in demonstrating with your gift that we believe in what we do here at UCF and making our ambitious participation goal a reality.

"UCF is an amazing place to work and go to school. I believe my support is a vote of confidence in my work and my degree! As we become less and less state-supported, we have to find ways to bridge the gap. Go Knights!"
