Twenty-one state agencies and University System institutions were recognized on Sept. 19, 2012, for their employees’ donations to the State Charitable Contributions Program last year.

This year’s Charitable Contributions campaign runs from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30. Employees may pledge online for one-time or monthly payroll deductions to any of hundreds of eligible charities.
