Volunteers needed for Campus Community Appeal
The 2011 Campus Community Appeal committee is looking for volunteers to assist with the annual fundraising effort directed to staff, faculty and retirees of Queen’s.
“Volunteering for the Appeal is an opportunity to bring your talents, skills and knowledge to a university-wide initiative that makes a meaningful difference for students and for the various programs and services benefitting our community,” says staff co-chair Jennifer Smith (Advancement). “Joining together in direct support of the work being done right here on campus has been a fun and rewarding part of my career at Queen’s.”
Volunteers from across campus help to plan and deliver Appeal initiatives in their faculty, school or department, with the goal of increasing participation in their area.
“We can be the catalyst for the kinds of changes we would like to see in our classrooms, our research labs and across campus,” says faculty co-chair Peter Taylor (Mathematics and Statistics). “Remarkable achievements can be realized with appropriate support.”
The appeal launches February 2 with the goals of attracting 750 donors and raising $1-million.
Doors Open Queen’s, the signature event, will be held through the lunch hours of the week of March 28-April 1. The event showcases a sample of the great work being done at Queen’s that is worthy of support by opening doors to areas of the university that might not otherwise be accessible to the public.
The 2011 co-chairs include Monica Stewart (Office of the V-P Academic) and Tim Fort (Drama).
More information about volunteer positions and how to get involved can be obtained from Appeal coordinator Lisa Drysdale (Advancement) through e-mail or at extension 75137.
