Faculty/Staff Reminder: The DeSales Fund

Thank you to everyone who has already made your gift to The DeSales Fund. If you haven’t already done so, just a quick reminder that we are approaching the end of not only the academic year but also the fiscal year.

We appreciate the support our faculty and staff give to The DeSales Fund and hope you will consider a gift before the end of the fiscal year which is June 30, 2018. As a reminder, gifts to The DeSales Fund go to scholarship/financial aid for our students.

You can submit a payroll deduction form to make your gift, or you can go right to our Make a Gift giving page online at desales.edu/makeagift.

Thank you for your consideration.
