2014-15 It’s Our LIFE Campaign

The “It’s Our Life” 2014-2015 Faculty & Staff Support Campaign is underway. Each employee’s participation helps build a culture of philanthropy in the LIFE Community. As we work to bolster fundraising with our alumni and friends and build more and stronger external sponsorships, it is important that we demonstrate that the people who work at LIFE believe strongly enough in its mission to support it financially. History indicates that philanthropy starts at home, and your support is a vital step as we seek to expand the donor base of the institution.

Our goal this year is 100% participation. Participation means that an employee makes a donation of any amount – $5, $500 or $5000. All donations are tax-deductible and may be either a one-time contribution or set up as installments automatically processed through payroll.

Listed below are some of your colleagues who are members of the Campaign Steering Committee. These individuals donate more than time; all of them are donors to the campaign. A member of this group may have already been in touch with you or will be soon to ask for your support. Thank you to: Mel Burton, Jasmine Collins, Taz Graves, Tim Gross, Cynthia Lund, Jessica Magazu, Mark Maiyer, Chris Nadine, Brett North, Maria Rodriquez-Curtis, Lisa Rubin, Susan Sharkey, Jennifer Stroble and Sheila Wood.

Again, our goal this is year 100% participation – so it’s not the size of the gift you make; it’s simply that you make one. Every donation makes a difference and all gifts are deeply appreciated. There are numerous giving options and easy payment plans. If you have questions contact Mark Elam in the Development Office, 770-426-2660 or

Thank you for your consideration and for all that you do throughout the year as part of the LIFE family. We hope you will join us in reaching our goal of 100% participation in 2014-15!
