How to Get a Job in IT

The Perfect Fit Phonathon Campaign
Life is a set of moving pieces that need to fit together – child care, career, education. But one piece often remains: how do you finance a degree when money is short? Soon, you may receive a telephone call asking you to help a deserving student by making a contribution to the 2012-2013 Annual Campaign. Your gift could be the missing piece that helps an Excelsior student earn a degree.
Sustainers (EFT) Program
Donors who make regularly scheduled contributions to the Annual Campaign have a new option: automatic credit card or bank deductions (EFT). This provides donors with convenience in giving, saves Excelsior the costs of processing reminders, and has a more immediate impact on the College because gifts are continuous throughout the year.
Help Others and Yourself
Do you ever feel torn between helping others who really need it and tending to your own responsibilities? You're not alone. Exploring these three steps may help you find a way to satisfy your financial commitments and your philanthropic goals.
Show Some "Team" Spirit
Excelsior may not have its own athletic teams, but that doesn't mean that you can't show your EC team spirit at the games you're attending this season. Get your EC gear here!
