Q1: What is the Faculty & Staff Campaign?
A: The Faculty & Staff Campaign is a fundraising effort to provide HCC faculty and staff an opportunity to invest in HCC and its students by donating unrestricted funds to be used where needed for the benefit of the HCC community. This demonstrates the unity and strength in working together to further the success of our students.

Q2: Why is my annual participation important?
A: Your annual participation is important because it shows that you are aligned with our shared mission, scholarships to support student success! By helping our students soar, you set an example for your colleagues by showing them you are invested in our student's success. We also show the Houston community at large that HCC faculty and staff also invest in the success of our students through personal giving. Annual participation is key to our success.

Q3: When I contribute to the HCC Faculty & Staff Campaign, where does my contribution go?
A: By making a contribution to the Faculty & Staff Campaign, you are contributing to the success of our students. You also have the opportunity to contribute to the success of your fellow HCC colleagues and their families through our expanded campaign giving options in 2017. You can designate your gift for the HCC Foundation or a particular scholarship. The Eaglet Fund is a fund that provides scholarships for children and immediate family members of faculty and staff (full-time/part-time).

Q4: How do I participate in the campaign?
A: You can donate online by visiting hccsfoundation.org/allinforhcc. You can also print the donation form available online to complete and mail with payment. We encourage payroll deduction, but you can also make your gift by credit card, check or cash.

Q5: How much did the campaign raise in 2016 and what is the goal for 2017?
A: The 2016 campaign raised almost $100,000 (less matching funds) and the goal for 2017 is $130,000.

Q6: If I authorize payroll deduct indefinitely, can I change it if something happens?
A: Yes. You have the right to contact the HCC Foundation to change or cancel your payroll deduct at any time.

Q7: Do I need to re-enroll for payroll deduction if I already signed up for indefinite in the previous Faculty & Staff Campaign?
A: No. Your support will continue. You may opt to increase your deduction per pay period to provide even more support for student scholarships. Thank you for your commitment to invest in our students! The HCC Foundation is re-introducing the Golden Eagle Society in fall 2017 to recognize annual giving at the $5,000 level and above.

Q8: How do I find my Employee ID for setting up payroll deductions?
A: To find your Employee ID, log into PeopleSoft@YourService by visiting www.hccs.edu, choosing Staff or Faculty in the Information for tab, then logging into the HR System Sign In page using your HCC email User ID and password. In PeopleSoft at the Main Menu dropdown, click Self Service, then Payroll and Compensation, then Employee Job Data to locate your Employee ID.
