for New and Returning Volunteers
Community Fund Drive is…
a charitable giving workplace campaign
Conducted every October 1 - 31
Driven by Lead volunteers (like you!) from each college or unit and grassroots volunteers from within your units, with help from a volunteer committee (that’s us!)

Administrative costs are lower than they would be if charities had to solicit individual donations
Payroll deductions provide charities with year-long predictable income making it easier for them to plan services
Workplace campaigns are better for employees:
They’re safe! You’re guaranteed that your donation safely reaches any charity you select
They’re easy! You can select from an array of organizations that matter most to you
