Message from the Honorary Chairman

As chairman of the 2016-17 State Charitable Contributions Program (SCCP) campaign, I am proud of the positive impact our contributions are making in the lives of citizens in need.

The SCCP is the official workplace giving campaign for state employees and the university system. Created in 1982 by the legislature, the SCCP gives each of us an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others by supporting charitable programs.

Last year, state agency and university system employees donated more than $1.4 million to support charities that provide health, welfare, environmental and educational services.

This year, we have over 1300 participating charities with a wide variety of missions. You have a choice in where your donation will go. For as little as $1 per month, you have the ability to support a cause that means something to you personally.

I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to support one or more of these worthy charitable organizations. The efforts we make during this campaign have the ability to shape the future of those in need. Now, more than ever, charities need our help.

 

Governor Nathan Deal
