2019 Annual Giving Campaign – Employee Appeal

Did you know that the Owens Foundation was able to give back to the College over $331,600 in program support and scholarship awards for fiscal year 2018?  Because of the generosity of our employees and external donors, the Foundation continues its efforts to remove barriers and provide affordable education to students who strive for a better future.

We invite you to participate in the 2019 Annual Giving Campaign through the employee appeal.  Each gift, no matter how large or small, will make a big difference in our efforts to support students and the College.

Did you hear about this year’s raffle drawing?  Employees who complete their payroll deduction forms or make a one-time donation by Friday, January 18 are entered into the drawing to win great prizes that have been donated including, gift cards, gas cards, tickets to area attractions like the Schedel Arboretum & Gardens, tickets to the Walleye & Mud Hens, and more!

How do I participate and make a gift? The most convenient way to make a gift is through payroll deduction. Simply fill out the Employee Payroll Deduction form online and click submit. You may also make either a one-time gift or set-up recurring monthly payments with a credit card online at www.owens.edu/give.  Please call the Foundation Office at (567) 661-7603 with any questions.

May I direct my gift to a specific scholarship or support fund? Yes! While the greatest area of need is The Owens Fund, donors may choose to direct their gifts to more than 150 scholarships and support funds within the Foundation.

All employees who participate in the 2019 Annual Giving Campaign will receive a small token of appreciation and will be invited to the Employee Donor Recognition event in the Fall semester.

Please join your fellow employees and consider participating today!
