Employee Giving

imageEmployees are the heart of Columbus State and make up the largest group of donors to the Columbus State Foundation.

As a member of the Columbus State family, you understand the many challenges faced by our students. By making a meaningful investment as an employee donor, you can take your work to another level and make a transformative difference in the life of a deserving student.

Participating in the Employee Giving Campaign is easy, impactful and 100% tax deductible.

You can make a one time gift by clicking the "give now" button or set up your payroll deduction contribution through the link on the right of this page. Over 70% of our employee donors choose payroll deduction for you can easily spread your gift out over the course of a year. For example, a $5 per pay donation, turns into $120 at the end of the year! 

However you choose to give, there is no gift too small and all gifts matter to our students.

Why We Give

Dianne Fidelibus:

I believe in what we do. I believe in the students that we serve, I value having the opportunity to help transform lives through education. I have often heard that you can tell what a person truly values by looking at where they spend their money! I am honored to 'spend my money', to give to scholarships that indeed, provide students opportunities to change their lives.

Dianne Fidelibus
Associate Professor MH/AS/DD

Amy Bullock:

As a Columbus Technical Institute/Columbus State Community College alumna, I owe it to the school and to the Foundation sponsors to give back all the privileges they have afforded me over the years from being a student and all through my years of service to the college. CS has given me the opportunity to pursue my higher education degrees and my long successful career in international education.

Stephanie Albrecht:

One of the things I love most about working at Columbus State is the fact that I get to spend my days with colleagues that are 100% committed to each of our students as individuals. CSCC staff and faculty demonstrate their dedication to students every day in words and actions. Giving to the Foundation is one more way to live that pledge.
