“Your Gift Makes Lives Brighter”
 FSU 2016 GOAL: $375,000
(Campaign ends December 2nd)

60-percentJean and I are proud to support Florida State University’s 2016 United Way Campaign – it’s a tangible way to show our personal commitment to people in this incredible community we call home.

On our campus we talk a lot about the FSU family. I have seen time and time again, compassionate faculty, staff and students – reach out to take care of one another.

I also know, the Florida State family has generous hearts that reach beyond our campus borders. The annual FSU-United Way campaign provides a great opportunity for each us to make a positive difference in the lives of young children, struggling adults and ailing elders. Remember, ALL of our contributions stay right here – close to home (FSU is not part of the State of Florida campaign).

We can really make a difference. In fact, FSU is the second-largest contributor in the community-wide workplace campaign. I’m proud of that generosity and I am confident we can do even more.

Thank you for your consideration and caring hearts.

John Thrasher


Campaign of Caring Goals

  • Continue to serve as a community leader, and raise $375,000 in contributions
  • Increase faculty and staff participation in campaign, which runs through Dec. 2
  • Increase giving through payroll deductions
  • Increase FSU Leadership Givers

Did you know just $5 a pay period would raise more than $800,000 in donations (with full employee participation)?

Reminder, all of our contributions remain in the local community. FSU is NOT part of the State’s FSECC campaign.
