Join us: The Annual Giving Drive is happening now

Dear friends,

Earlier this month, we kicked off our Employee Giving Program Annual Giving Drive — the most fun time of the year!

Now through Nov. 20, we can make a difference by supporting the causes that are most important to us.

This is year is different. While we may be physically apart, we are still together through this important work.

As you know, we are in a critical moment – locally and globally. Across our region, nonprofits are simultaneously facing a drop in funding while working on the front lines responding to the global pandemic, racism as a public health crisis, and climate change.

On a personal note, we recognize that life right now feels overwhelming. We are all doing the best we can with what we have, and the Employee Giving Program can be a simple way to take action. Every small act adds up in our collective impact as a community.

I invite you to watch a short video with a hopeful message for this year’s Annual Giving Drive:

During the Annual Giving Drive, employees may:

  • Market and communicate about specific causes and participating Employee Giving Program nonprofits.
  • Sign-up online in PeopleSoft Employee Self-Service for payroll donations for the coming year.
  • Give using Time Donation.
  • Invite nonprofit speakers.
  • Hold fundraisers and put on special events.
  • And more!

How can you participate?

You can help in many ways:

Join us this year to turn up the good!

Care. Connect. Act.
