The Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) is the tool that facilitates State Employee workplace giving. It is a voluntary employee charitable giving program, which raises funds for numerous nonprofit health and humanitarian organizations throughout the state of Virginia. In the past ten years (2002-2012), employees have donated more than $37.6 million to participating non-profit organizations through CVC!
More than 1,300 charities participate in CVC’s annual campaign, which runs from October 1st through December 21st each year. Employees may designate their gift to a specific charity or multiple charities within the program, by giving a one-time donation, or through payroll deduction. CVC also coordinates relief in times of emergencies. Special fund drives have resulted in thousands of dollars in aid for victims of the Japan Tsunami, Tornados in Virginia, and for the Massey Cancer Center. CVC sends 100% of each designated gift to the organization selected by the employee. No overhead or operating fees are deducted by CVC.
This site is provided as a resource for charities, state employees, campaign volunteers, and people who want to be more involved in their communities.
