A Final Close to Home Note

From Genny Alexander, formerly Development:

It has been such an honor working on the Close to Home Faculty & Staff campaign over the past four years. When I came to KSC in June 2008, there was 6% participation and not a lot of people knew about the good work faculty & staff gifts were making on campus.

Fast forward four years, and private giving by KSC employees has flourished! This year, 26% of staff and faculty on campus gave $73,420 to support students and programs on campus. THANK YOU!!!

I’d like to thank the wonderful people who have served on the Close to Home committees over the past three years: Lindsay Taflas, Peg Barrett, Liz Cahoon, Jim Chesebrough, Tim Garland, Mike Hanrahan, Lynn Roman, Kim Schmidl-Gagne, Mike Ward, Colin Burdick, Linda Madden, David May, Sara Telfer, Sasha Watt, Ann Gagnon, Pat Hitchner, Lois Merry, Paul Vincent, and Bud Winsor. Without your hard work, creative ideas, and personal support of the College, these changes would not have been possible.

On a final note (because what kind of fundraiser would I be if I didn’t add this?), gifts will still be accepted for this year’s campaign until June 30, so if you haven’t made your gift, please contact Lindsay Taflas, Assistant Director of Annual Giving, at 8-2641 or make your gift online at

Thank you, again, for your gifts of time, talent and financial support – Keene State College is truly a remarkable community!
