While the 2016 Partners in Giving campaign dates officially ended on November 30, 2015, contributions have still been coming in, raising the contribution from the CALS community to over $63,000, an increase over last year’s final numbers by over $6,600. Not only have we increased the amount given, but we have at least 30 more donors this year than last as well, and there’s still time to give! Contributions made by Jan 31 will count towards the 2016 campaign but pledges will continue to be accepted until May 15. If you still wish to donate to the campaign and have questions, please connect with your department Partners in Giving coordinator or college co-chair Therese McHenry (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The 2016 campaign total is currently just under $2.5 million. Since its inception in 1973 as the State Employee Combined Campaign, Partners in Giving has raised an astounding $71.8 million for charitable causes.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in these efforts and made the campaign a success.
