Since 2010, Virginia Tech employees have donated more than $1.4 million local charities in the New River Valley and across the state through the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign.
Administered by the university’s Department of Human Resources, the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign is a workplace-giving program that allows state employees to designate a financial gift to any of more than 1,000 participating charities. Types of charities include health and human services, animal welfare, environmental conservation and medical research.
The 2015 CVC will begin on September 21 and close on Dec. 14. The listing of individual charities participating in this year’s campaign will be announced in mid-September along with the goal. Donations will be accepted via the online pledge system again this year.
