Realizing Potential: One Department Uses One Challenge to More than Double Employee Giving Participation

2016-05-17_FinanceDeptNSU’s Finance Department increased staff giving from 34% to 76% though a recent Realizing Potential campaign challenge. Alyson Silva, Vice President and CFO, invited Annual Fund representatives to help launch the challenge. The department was divided in to two teams, Team Silver and Team Blue to encourage peer support. Team captains lent a personal touch to developing camaraderie around giving.  Thermometer and team posters helped rally support and inform team members how close they were to securing incentives along the way. Weekly incentives included wearing jeans, an ice cream party/pizza party, and a Thanks-a-latte reception hosted by NSU’s Annual Fund team.

In just three weeks, giving participation by NSU finance department members rose to 52 employees!

“I am so grateful to the finance team for giving back to NSU, recognizing that every gift makes a difference and as a team we are committed to supporting the success of our students and faculty,” Silva said.
