October 27, 2017 | NVC PR | Leave a comment With a record 71 percent of NVC faculty and staff members participating, the 2017 NVC Cares. . . I Care campaign raised $54,985 for our students and the community. The campaign provided an opportunity for NVC faculty and staff to contribute to NVC scholarships and programs, United Way agencies, arts and cultural organizations of TheFund and district-wide scholarships and programs. You have exceeded my expectations! Thank you for joining me in contributing to NVC’s annual campaign. We shattered all records in participation. From 28 percent participation of full-time faculty and staff last year to 71 percent participation in 2017. The total giving amount would not have been possible without the strong support of our part-time employees who helped us beat last year’s numbers with their donations. Highlights of the campaign included recognition of department teams for weekly achievements in participation, an array of prizes that donors to the campaign were eligible to win, NVC Cares cookies, a Pizza for Participation contest and even trophies. The NVC Cares Campaign is the NVC part of the annual Alamo Colleges Employees Giving Back Campaign. Overall, the Alamo Colleges campaign achieved 50 percent participation and raised $231,136, and set new records in both areas. As chair of the Alamo Colleges campaign, I’m proud every college stepped up for their students because the real winners are our students.
