Dear Connecticut State Employee:
The 2013 Connecticut State Employees’ Campaign for Charitable Giving (CSEC) kicked off in Hartford on Aug. 21 with a summer fair attended by hundreds of state employees. As the 2013 Statewide Campaign Chair, I want to personally extend my thanks to all of you who supported the event, especially the charity representatives, state employee entertainers, and dedicated volunteers.
This year the campaign’s statewide committee has set a $1.4 million goal. With your help, I firmly believe that this goal is reachable.
If you have never made a pledge to the CSEC, or if you haven’t given in a few years, please think about helping someone who is less fortunate. For $1 a pay period, or $26 a year, your donation can have a positive impact in your local community, in a neighboring state, or across the globe.
Connecticut’s state employees have been extremely generous over the years in supporting the hundreds of participating charitable organizations. The needs of these non-profit organizations are greater than ever, and for many, resources are limited.
It is your decision. You choose the charity, or charities, whose cause is most meaningful to you. I know that many of you already support other charitable causes. Please consider giving to the charity of your choice through the CSEC by either making a one-time gift donation or a payroll deduction pledge.
By now you should have received a campaign directory and pledge form, or information on how you can access all campaign materials via the campaign’s website. If you have any questions or concerns about the campaign, please call the Campaign Director at 860-402-8430.
Thanks to all of you, your generosity shows how we are able to help create a solution to a better tomorrow.
On behalf of the CSEC campaign committee, and the more than 700 participating charitable organizations, thank you for your support and contributions.
Secretary of the State
