We Care We Count raises record $720,900

We Care We Count 2015

The final tally is in for the 2015 We Care We Count campaign, and the results show that UNT faculty, staff and retirees gave in even higher numbers than originally reported at the end of the campaign. A total of $720,903.56 was raised with the inclusion of President’s Loyalty Fund match, a 69 percent increase over last year’s total.

Nicole Sprowl, director of the Annual Fund at UNT in the Division of Advancement, said the campaign also drew a record number of new donors.

“This campaign proves that UNT’s faculty, staff and retirees are generous, dedicated and passionate about helping students succeed, not only through their day-to-day work, but also by giving back their hard-earned dollars,” Sprowl said.

“It’s especially exciting to see that this year, 120 new donors made their very first gift ever during We Care We Count, proving we are building a culture of philanthropy on the UNT campus.”

The campaign’s In all, 514 members of the UNT community gave during We Care We Count.

The campaign, now in its fifth year, ran April 1 through May 1 and offered a dollar-for-dollar match of eligible gifts up to $10,000 per person from the President’s Loyalty Fund. Gifts to any program, initiative or scholarship fund were eligible.

New this year, the campaign offered prizes for faculty and staff members who returned completed gift forms, whether they chose to make a gift or just give feedback. The winners were:

  • Jerry Dake, College of Business
  • Heather Miller, College of Business
  • Matthew Phillips, Athletics
  • Martine Price, College of Arts and Sciences
  • Dreanna Belden, UNT Libraries, who won an iPad Mini in a special drawing for faculty and staff members who volunteered to act as champions promoting the campaign on campus

Sprowl said this year’s campaign made a tremendous impact on UNT’s students.

“The faculty, staff and retirees who gave during We Care We Count are making scholarship and learning opportunities available to thousands of students,” she said. “Giving bright students the chance to succeed has a positive impact way beyond our campus, and I’m proud that so many fellow faculty and staff members find that to be a worthy investment.”
