MURRAY, Ky. — Inspired by Sigma Alpha Iota’s All Campus Sing, a beloved University tradition 59 years in the making, the All Campus Give campaign will provide all Racers — alumni, faculty, staff, friends, parents and students — the opportunity to support experiential learning opportunities for students at Murray State University.
The campaign begins Sunday, April 9 and will conclude on Wednesday, April 12.
“All Campus Give is designed to bring our Racer community together to provide financial support to enhance our students’ experience both in and out of the classroom,” explained Dr. Adrienne King, vice president of university advancement. “It’s also a great way for our campus community to get involved in the All Campus Sing tradition!”
To support the campaign, participants are encouraged to make a gift of $10 or more to the Murray Fund for Excellence, which provides critical support for the University’s greatest needs. Past projects funded by the Murray Fund for Excellence include campus wi-fi expansions (2010), new Racer Band uniforms (2014) and affording study abroad experiences (2016).
“Joining in All Campus Give is a great way for alumni, faculty and staff, students, and friends to support our University. All contributions, big or small, make a difference,” added
Tina Bernot, executive director of development.
Participants can join the excitement of All Campus Give by making a donation in honor of one — or more — of their favorite organizations. Every one of the student organizations participating in this year’s All Campus Sing are participating in All Campus Give. The top three organizations with the most participants (number of gifts of $10 or more) will be named this year’s winners. In addition to bragging rights, the winning organizations will also receive cash prizes as follows: First Place = $500, Second Place = $250, Third Place = $100.
