To the University Community

Dear UConn Community Member,

The 2014 Connecticut State Employees’ Campaign (CSEC) for Charitable Giving begins today. We invite you to join along with many of your co-workers in making a contribution.

Each year, UConn faculty and staff join state employees across Connecticut in generously supporting non-profit charities that make a difference in the lives of children or the elderly, care for the environment, or help fund one of the many local, national, and international resource organizations. The CSEC Campaign offers a list of over 700 approved non-profit charities to choose from. With so many options, it is easy to find at least one charity that speaks to your heart. In the spirit of caring and commitment to the future, we hope you will participate in the 2014 Connecticut State Employees’ Campaign.

For easy reference, we have included on this site a list of the top 20 charities that were chosen by our members during last year’s campaign. The full listing of charities is also available through this site. The UConn campaign runs from Oct. 1 through Dec. 26. The pledge form was distributed by campus mail, and is available online. Whether you choose payroll deduction (deductions begin the first full pay period of January 2015) or a one-time gift by check, your donation will be greatly appreciated. All donations to CSEC charities are tax-deductible.

Local businesses and University programs have joined in this effort by donating gifts to be used in drawings throughout the campaign. Watch for announcements in the Daily Digest. All employees who have submitted a signed pledge form will be entered into the drawing.

Please fill out the pledge, and send your completed form to Paula Enderle, UConn-Storrs Coordinator of the 2014 Connecticut State Employees’ Campaign, at U-5075, or by fax to 860-486-0379.

Thank you!
