Why should I contribute?

The SCCP belongs to you – the State employee.  It doesn’t belong to the Government or to the charitable organizations that benefit from it.  You control where your gift will go.

SCCP provides employees with an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those in need – to help sustain community, state, national and international health, educational, environmental and human services.

the SCCP offers:

Choice – You get to direct your pledge to the organizations that are closest to your interests.
Convenience – Workplace giving has advantages.  Through payroll deduction you can give more, while only having a small amount deducted from each paycheck.
Confidence – Each charity is screened by your peers.  Requirements of each charity include: a Health and Human Service impact statement, IRS determination letter, tax form 990, and certified audits where appropriate.

You don’t have to go far to find people in need – many of your family members, friends and neighbors will at some point benefit from the services of charities participating in the SCCP.  Whether it’s advances in medicine provided by research, support for our aging parents, disaster assistance or the opportunity for a child to participate in after school programs – we all have something to gain by supporting the campaign.
