Society '54


The Society '54 Challenge is Coming!!!!

Are you able and willing to donate $54 over the course of one year to support the activities and programs of UCR Staff Assembly that benefit you and your fellow staff members? If so, then we need your help during the Society '54 Challenge.

The challenge runs for 54 days between March 26– May 19, 2018, and during that period we are hoping to get as many staff members as possible to become a member of Society '54.

Society '54 is made up of staff members like you who have chosen to give back and help their peers. All donations go to support UCR Staff Assembly's scholarship, assistance and general programs that benefit staff members in their times of greatest need, including assistance in purchasing food and gas during unexpected financial emergencies. Scholarships are also awarded to help staff members working to improve their skills, covering classes, books, certification tests and the like. Your contribution will make a big difference.

The majority of Society '54 members support Society '54 via automatic payroll deduction of just $4.50 per month. Donations by cash or check are also accepted. For more information, contact Wendy Wolfer.

Society ’54: Become a Member, Support Your Fellow Staff

Society ’54 is made up of staff members who have chosen to support the activities and programs of the UC Riverside Staff Assembly. Staff Assembly is only partially funded by the university and rely on fundraising efforts and donations to cover needed costs. Society ’54 is one of the major ways that Staff Assembly is able to fund various activities.

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about Society ’54. The purpose of the program is a simple one – to help staff members give back and help their peers. Perhaps you enjoyed a Staff Assembly event, or received a scholarship or assistance yourself. Perhaps you just want to help others. Whatever your reason, your contribution can make a big difference.

Have a question? Feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you.
