SU Supports 2023 Maryland Charity Campaign

By SU Public Relations

SALISBURY, MD---Each year, the Maryland Charity Campaign provides more than $2 million for nearly 1,000 non-profit organizations throughout the state thanks to the generosity of state employees.

SU faculty and staff are encouraged to support this year’s campaign, “Leave No One Behind.”

Through Monday, December 11, Maryland state employees participating in the program may donate to their choice of organizations such as food banks, mental health programs, homeless services, animal shelters and more. Organizations eligible for support through the program include the SU Foundation, Inc. (code 521127369).

“In years past, we have seen a significant jump in participation from everyone at SU, and that is something to be proud of,” said Dr. Sherry Maykrantz, associate professor of public health and SU Maryland Charity Champaign co-chair.

“Let’s keep the momentum going. The committee is encouraging all faculty and staff to consider giving $1 per pay ($26 a year). It’s not about how much you give; it’s about participating and supporting our University. Let’s show everyone that Salisbury University truly doesn’t leave anyone behind.”

Last year, SU was recognized with the campaign’s Highest Increase in Monetary Contributions Award and, for the fourth time, the Highest Percentage of Goal Award, honoring the University as the agency exceeding its state-designated goal by the most.

Those who give this year will be entered into weekly drawings for prizes including local restaurant gift cards, and items from the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens.
