UO Libraries' #DucksGive 2017 Tally = $109,969
Thank you to all our supporters!
#DucksGive, the UO’s second annual giving day, ran from noon, May 17 to midnight, May 18, 2017. For UO Libraries, the day (actually 36 hours) was another big success! We received 131 gifts totaling $109,969. Generous UO Libraries supporters kicked in 10% of the total amount raised across campus. That's awesome!
Special thanks to longtime library champions Sheryl Bose (BS ’65, MS ’68) and Clayton Steinke (BS ’65) -- their challenge gift of $100,000 will create the Sheryl and Clayton Steinke Student Employee Endowment Fund, boosting UO Libraries' longstanding tradition of offering quality, on-campus job opportunities for students.
The library employs more student workers than any other academic unit at UO, and our library student workers earn more than just a paycheck. They also gain experience and training that relates to their studies. Library student employees enjoy scheduling flexibility to help balance work and school, and have valuable opportunities to make connections with faculty, staff, and fellow students outside their schools and majors.
