Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign – No donation too small

From: Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign

Thanks to our generous employees, the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) has raised over $165,000 of the university’s goal of $390,000. With less than 40 days to go, continue the momentum and help the university reach this goal.

You can make a difference in someone’s life by donating $5 or $10. At Feeding America Southwest Virginia, a regional foodbank, a $5 donation can provide 30 meals to those in need. For the Literacy Volunteers of the New River Valley, a $10 donation can provide a week of reading instruction for an adult. These classes ultimately give individuals the ability to get jobs and take care of their families.

This year’s campaign runs until Dec. 13. Employees can make a donation through the CVC website through an online payroll deduction, choosing either a one-time or a 24-pay period deduction.

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.
