The California State Employee Charitable Campaign, which is celebrating its 50th year, runs through Nov. 22. The campaign allows Cal Poly Pomona employees to donate to hundreds of charities through payroll deduction.
The 2006 statewide campaign raised $7.1 million.
“Last year, Cal Poly Pomona faculty and staff donated over $35,000 to agencies represented by the Inland Empire United Way,” says CSECC chair Sandra Richmond-Morton of Risk Management. “The campaign for their entire service area raised just over $100,000, so we gave over a third of all donations. This year, our committee has set a goal of $40,000. I'm confident members of the Bronco community will meet and, hopefully surpass that goal.”
By California law, each state employee must receive a pledge form. This form can be utilized to begin or continue a payroll deduction (the most popular form of donating), designate a recipient either from a list offered by the Inland Empire United Way, discontinue a donation, or simply decline the opportunity. The form should be returned by Nov. 22, with the actual deductions beginning in January.
There are hundreds of agencies eligible for support in California.
“It's the only time all year when we ask the entire community to help and employees can even designate Cal Poly Pomona as the recipient of their gift,” Richmond-Morton says.
If you wish to make a donation to the university designate your gift to the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, and specify the college, department or program you would like to support.
