Join the Virginia Tech Rescue Squad as they speak about their charity’s mission on Nov. 3

From: Virginia Tech's Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC)

As November approaches, we would like to remind employees to donate to the CVC. This gesture would impact communities greatly. Help us get to our $370,000 goal this year.

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.

Virginia Tech employees have the opportunity to interact with local charities through Zoom sessions every Tuesday. A weekly schedule can be viewed on the CVC website, listing the participating charities and registration information.

The following charity will present on Nov. 3 providing insight on their mission in our community:

This year’s campaign runs until Dec. 11. Employees can donate to the campaign multiple ways, including two new options this year. The following are ways to donate:

  • Payroll deduction: Donate through an online payroll deduction by choosing one of the two options: a one-time gift or a monthly deduction.
