Are You Ready?
Only 14 hours left to support the Chancellor Dan Jones Chair for Faculty Support!
Expansive progress! We are nearing our goal of attracting $1 million to honor Chancellor Jones’ tenure and building faculty support. Together, Ole Miss Family members are continuing to fuel the incredible momentum we have all come to expect, moving this great American university onward and upward. This time the Oxford campus is energized by critical faculty support pouring in to pay tribute to contributions of Chancellor Dan Jones!
Breaking news! The Gertrude C. Ford Foundation has stepped forward with an amazing $250,000 gift to join alumni and friends, faculty, and staff in honoring Chancellor Jones by building significant faculty support – a top priority he established during his administration. This Jackson, Miss.-based foundation continues to be deeply committed to our academic community as well as to our magnificent cultural hub, the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts. Thank you, Ford Foundation board members, for investing in our University!
Join this exciting movement! Since our last email, the staff campaign’s total has reached more than 43 percent of its goal in the Chancellor Jones initiative. The staff campaign has now raised $19,101 from our ranks toward the overall $1 million goal. Your gift will have a tremendous positive impact on the lives of Ole Miss students, as they are taught and mentored by outstanding professors. As graduates, they will then make significant contributions to society.
Be a strong Ole Miss staff member and pay it forward! Let’s help ensure other generations have similar high-quality educational opportunities and transforming experiences. We need you to give, whatever the amount. Please participate today by 11:59 p.m. and let the world know that our great momentum grows stronger each day. We are redoubling our efforts to serve our students, our great state and the world! Thank you for your dedication to Ole Miss!
In these final hours, you can also help by sharing this campaign with family, friends and colleagues, using the hashtag #WAOM (We Are Ole Miss) or #IStandWithDan.
We can do this together. We are Ole Miss!
