Faculty and Staff Fund Drive

Faculty and Staff Fund Drive

Greetings Clayton State Family,

Here we are truckin’ through fall semester! As fabulous Clayton State faculty and staff, we invest our time and talent in the University and students every day. We are determined to see Clayton State grow—in enrollment, in opportunities and experiences for students and for ourselves, in all the ways important to our future. When you extend your contributions to include philanthropy, you express your belief in the University and actively support our long-standing culture of excellence. Can you dig it?

What’s the lowdown? Here’s the skinny, the Faculty Staff Fund Drive is the opportunity for each of us to support our students and our colleagues as we all work together to make Clayton State the best it can be. Your gifts go directly to the area or areas you choose—to your own department or college, to scholarships, to the Student Retention Fund or any of the many existing copacetic funds you’re down with. Catch my drift?

Why is the faculty and staff fund drive so out of sight? Besides good vibes, contributions from current and retired faculty and staff provide funding for programs, departments, and scholarships at Clayton State. But the real low down is the strong message sent to those OUTSIDE the University community, announcing to alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and community partners that we support Clayton State, it’s strong regional impact, and feel it is worthy of their support too. 

Far out! How do I give? This year it’s easier than ever to give from your computer! You may think that you cannot afford a gift out-of-sight enough to make a difference but remember the amount you give is combined with other gifts for the most radical impact. There is no limit in the number of funds to which you can contribute—just tell us how you want your gift applied.

  1. Go online to to securely give a one-time OR recurring gift with a credit card, debit card, or bank account information.
  2. For Payroll Deduction, complete the gift form and return it through interoffice mail or email it to, make sure you have SIGNED your form!
  3. Complete and return your gift form to Woodlands Hall, 2nd floor, with your check or cash gift. You may also mail your gift to: CSU Foundation, PO Box 387, Morrow, GA 30260
  4. Contact your area Ambassador or to arrange pick up from your on-campus office location. 

Out of sight! I’m stoked to give, what else do I need to know? The 2020 Faculty and Staff Fund Drive begins November 2 and concludes November 27. We have established a goal of 100% participation—any amount contributed is greatly appreciated. We look forward to celebrating each department as you reach your participation goal! Thank you for your continued support of Clayton State University!
