The 2013 Family Campaign continues through June 30. The annual fundraising effort is the avenue for the University's extended family of faculty, staff and
retirees to support BGSU's students, programs and campuses.
Gifts from the University family are also a powerful endorsement that helps make the case with outside donors and alumni, demonstrating the commitment of
those closest to the institution.
To contribute, fill out a donation form or complete the form online.
Unrestricted gifts to the Family Campaign will go toward scholarships. Donors may also designate their gift to any area they choose. Gifts and pledges may
be made by check, credit card or payroll deduction.
All gifts, in any amount and to any University area, made before June 30 count toward Family Campaign, and all are valuable.
Last year's campaign yielded more than $800,000. Since its inception, the campaign has raised more than $10 million.
