Our Community, Our Laurier
As we approach the end of the year, I would like to update you on the Our Community, Our Laurier campaign. Please accept my sincere thanks to the many staff, faculty and retirees who have "picked their passion and made their mark" by making a gift to Laurier, and to the volunteer team for their efforts in sharing donor stories and information about the campaign.
To date, I am pleased to announce we have 48 new donors, totalling 395. However, the campaign is not finished. The volunteer team is hoping to reach a participation goal of 550 donors.
I encourage you to consider making a gift to the Our Community, Our Laurier campaign as one of the many ways you can live a life of leadership and purpose. Make your gift before December 31st to be counted with your friends and colleagues in the 2009-2010 campaign.
Did you know that you can choose to make your gift through payroll deduction? Many of our donors appreciate the ability to spread out their giving through incremental payments. To pick your passion and make your mark, please visit /ourcommunityourlaurier. You can make your gift through payroll deduction by returning a pledge card or making a secure online gift. Your gift must be received no later than December 31, 2009 to be eligible for a 2009 tax credit.
Together, we do make a difference! Best wishes to everyone for happiness and peace in this giving season.
