APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR 2016 ALABAMA STATE EMPLOYEE COMBINED CHARITABLE CAMPAIGN

 March 4, 2016 is the application deadline for local voluntary charitable health and human care agencies or federations to apply for participation in the fall 2016 State Combined Campaign.

The State Combined Campaign will begin in August/September and is designed to allow state employees to give to recognized local and/or statewide charities.  Alabama law emphasizes local control to help ensure the campaign meets needs where state employees work and live.

Charitable agencies desiring to participate in the 2016 State Combined Campaign should complete the State Combined Campaign Application 2016 and use the 2016 Application Enclosures.  Questions?  Contact Becky Booker at 334-269-4505 or bbooker@unitedwaysal.org   Questions concerning federation/agency eligibility should also be referred to the above point of contact.

The State Combined Campaign “officially” ended on December 31st.  However, we still have time to reach our statewide goal of $780,000l  Please ensure that all pledges have been collected and sent in.  Also, feel free to do a final appeal as we are only $34,000 away from our goal.  Please make that last push to ensure everyone has had the opportunity to contribute.  We will continue to take pledges throughout January.  PLEASE DO NOT TURN ANY PLEDGES AWAY.
