Thanks to everyone who has participated so far in the 2016 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) through donation, participation in the first annual Carruthers/Michie Cornhole Tournament (congratulations to runners-up Dave Boling and Stacey Rittenhouse) and purchases at the Carruthers Bake/Craft Sale. In particular, thank you to Stacey for the time and effort she spends in coordinating this effort for the finance division.
So far this year, 19 Finance* team members have contributed $4,203 (not yet including donations from Procurement and Budget). Across the University, 1,452 employees have pledged $412,331 to the campaign. Contributions to the CVC help 1,200 charities across Virginia and the nation that serve persons in need throughout our community, our state, our country, and the world. For those who have not yet made a contribution, please take a moment here before Thanksgiving to consider a gift, regardless of the amount, to the Campaign.
Last year’s total was 30 donors contributing $8,366 – so we have some ground to make up before the campaign closes on December 31, 2015. Remember, it is not how much you give but that you give that makes a difference! You can pick up a red envelope from Stacey or utilize the online form through the CVC website. Click “Pledge Online,” log-in in via netbadge, and complete the instructions. Thank you for your generosity!
* Neither current year nor prior year numbers include Budget and Procurement contributions (yet).
