Support local charities through 2019 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign

Thanks to our generous employees, since the kickoff on Sept. 30, the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) is heading in the right direction to meet the university’s $390,000 goal.

CVC is an annual workplace giving campaign. State employees raise and donate money to one or more of approximately 1,000 participating charities in their communities and across the commonwealth. Charities range from health and human services to animal welfare, from environmental conservation to medical research, and everything in between. There is a charity for everyone.

This year’s campaign will run until Dec. 13. Since 2010, Virginia Tech employees have donated more than $2.8 million to local charities in the New River Valley and across the Commonwealth of Virginia.

No donation is too small; even a $5 donation can make a difference in someone’s life. Employees can donate through an online payroll deduction, choosing either a one-time deduction or a 24-pay period deduction. Cash and checks are also accepted. Pledge cards are available for cash and check donations and those who do not have online access.

CVC is administered by the Division of Human Resources and led by a steering team made up of representatives from across the university. Questions about the campaign should be directed to department representatives. More information can be found on the CVC website.
