Posted on April 19, 2019
The 2019 University of South Alabama Employee Annual Giving Campaign raised $1,036,848, exceeding its goal by 30 percent.
The annual campaign seeks support from University and USA Health employees and retirees to benefit all areas of USA including student access and success, research, athletics, global engagement, excellence in health care and community engagement.
A total of 2,899 employees and retirees donated to this year’s campaign, signifying a 56 percent participation rate from all USA faculty, staff and retirees. Dr. Tony Waldrop, University president, emphasized the importance of the annual campaign’s success.
“I am honored to work with such a dedicated group of faculty, staff and retirees who genuinely care about the future of their University and health system,” said Waldrop. “Their continued support helps to make the University a better place.”
Through the annual campaign, more than 450 donors supported 122 undergraduate student scholarships. These gifts were matched dollar-for-dollar by the Mitchell-Moulton Scholarship Initiative.
The 2019 employee campaign saw a 26 percent increase in giving over 2018. Dr. Heather Hall, dean of the College of Nursing, served as co-chair of the campaign, along with Traci Jones, chief financial officer and assistant vice president for medical affairs, USA Health and Dr. Samuel Strada, dean emeritus, College of Medicine.
“As an alumna and faculty member, I have tremendous pride in our University and USA Health,” said Hall. “I am grateful to have had the opportunity to help lead this essential fundraising effort and am so appreciative of the support from so many of our generous employees and retirees.”
