Telfer rises to the challenge for the 2019 Employee Giving Program
The Employee Giving program is an annual initiative run by the University of Ottawa, which seeks to engage faculty, support staff and retirees in support of student-focused initiatives. These donations focus on enhancing the student experience with scholarships, financial aid and research programs. This year marks the eighth year of the campaign, in which the Telfer School saw its most successful participation rate to date.
The co-champions of the Telfer Employee Giving Campaign, Kimberly Duthie and Michael Mulvey, set out to obtain 101 donors this year, and they are proud to announce that they exceeded their goal with 109 donors! Not only did Telfer see the largest number of donors in 2019, it also represents a 60% participation rate, which is also a record number at the Telfer School. This means that, for the third year in a row, the Telfer School has the highest participation rate of any Faculty of the University of Ottawa.
