Lift Up! is the annual Collin College Employee Giving Campaign and is part of the Collin College
Foundation's Annual Giving Campaign.
Because tax dollars may not be used to fund student scholarships, the foundation is charged with raising the funding to help deserving students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to receive a college education.
The Lift Up! campaign is held each year during the month of October. This year, Collin College employees raised $108,728 and achieved a 51% participate rate (more than double the 2014 participation rate)! Thanks to President Matkin's "New Donor Challege," 161 first-time donors joined Dr. and Mrs. Matkin as new donors to the foundation and donated a combined $15,914.The funds raised by employees alone will allow the Foundation to award nearly 100 full scholarships to deserving students for the 2016-2017 scholarship cycle!
Gifts during Lift Up! are designated to one or more of the following:
Existing Scholarship Funds
Collin College Excellence Funds
Existing Endowed Scholarships
General Scholarship Fund
