State Employee Charity Giving Campaigns Begin

2015 MCC Annapolis eventFall heralds the beginning of 2016 State Employee giving campaigns.    Similar to the Combined Federal Campaign run by the US government, State campaigns ask employees to donate to one or more organizations on their list of approved charities.   Approved organizations are selected based on a variety of program and finance criteria that varies from state to state.

This year the Children’s AIDS Fund International (CAFI) is participating in 17 state campaigns, which are an important source of funding for CAFI.  Last year the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) lead the way with over $1,700 pledged.  Thank you Virginia!

We try to attend as many state campaign kick-off events as possible to showcase CAFI’s important outcomes, but with campaign events in multiple states that can be difficult, if not impossible.

If you know anyone who works in one of these state governments, state universities or state run hospitals, let them know about the important work CAFI

This is where CAFI’s friends and supporters come in.    Anyone who has colleagues or acquaintances living in and working for the State government in any of the following states can encourage them to consider donating to CAFI in their state campaign.
