Each year during the Our Baylor Faculty, Staff and Retirees Campaign, we receive many questions about how participation is counted. We hope this list answers those questions so you feel confident as you support Our Baylor.
Most of us support causes we believe in — our places of worship, health care and medical research organizations, the arts, youth groups and scores of other worthy causes. As you become involved in BU and develop a belief in the mission of the University, your financial support is another way you can make a difference. The commitment of the BU community is a strong vote of confidence in the future of the University.
Most departments and divisions have excellence funds, which can be found on our giving site by click your division name. Your support not only counts toward participation, but also helps your department.
That's a tricky one. If you supported the Baylor Family Compassion Fund through United Way, it doesn't count because we don't have record of each donor. However, if you support the Baylor Family Compassion Fund through a Baylor commitment card or through www.baylor.edu/give, it does count!
Any department that reaches 100% participation will be invited to a special event at the President's Skybox in McLane Stadium. To find out how your department is doing, click here, find the name of your division and then click to see your department breakdown.
