Giving works: Charitable giving campaign set for Nov. 1-30

The City’s annual charitable giving campaign will run through the month of November. The campaign offers you an opportunity to easily and conveniently donate to a charitable cause you support and help make our community better.

Every autumn, the City partners with hundreds of nonprofits to help build the future of our community and further the City’s work. Charitable organizations play an integral role in our community’s well-being, from helping people who need food and homes to protecting the environment, bolstering the arts and educating kids. The charitable organizations’ work complements the City’s work and helps us make progress on our goals and strategic directions.

The 2015 campaign “Giving works: You make it happen” will be led by co-chairs Brette Hjelle, director of administration in Public Works, and Sasha Bergman, government relations representative in Intergovernmental Relations. Their goal is to raise $100,000 with the campaign this year; last year, City employees donated $92,371.

During the month-long campaign, you can make a one-time donation to one or more charitable organizations or sign up for a regular payroll deduction to support the charity of your choice. Your donation is tax deductible, and individual contributions add up.

The charitable organizations selected to participate in this year’s campaign:

You may also donate to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of your choice. Look for more information on how to donate to the campaign coming soon.
