2023 VtSHARES Campaign 'Believe in the Difference'

October 23 - November 6, 2023

As State of Vermont employees, we work hard every day to achieve the Governor's priorities of growing the economy, making Vermont more affordable and protecting the most vulnerable. One way we can help achieve those goals is by contributing to areas of need in our neighboring communities. Each fall State of Vermont employees have the choice to designate any amount directly from their paycheck to approved nonprofit organizations, serving Vermont communities that are close to their heart. Each donation is optional and makes a world of difference in the lives of so many.

The 2023 VtSHARES Campaign, ‘Believe in the Difference’, will begin 8:00 AM Monday, October 23, 2023, and end 5:00 PM Monday, November 6, 2023. Our goals are for 1,093 employees to pledge a total of $283,615.00 for local nonprofit organizations in Vermont. 

For the 2022 Campaign, State of Vermont employees pledged a total of $283,565, which exceeded our contributor goal by 77 and contribution goal by $13,194 – amazing!

Through our combined efforts to date, $10,701,432.99 has been pledged by State of Vermont employees to assist local communities in need. We can take pride in the fact that our dollars are helping improve the quality of life for so many by supporting a wide variety of nonprofit organizations. Certainly, our efforts have far exceeded any expectations imagined possible when VtSHARES began, formally known as the State Employees’ Combined Charitable Appeal (SECCA), established in 1977.

The economy and environment have continued to challenge our state and fellow Vermonters, and supporting those in need has always been a trademark of State of Vermont employees. 

Once again, we thank all State of Vermont employees for their support and invite you explore this site and the opportunities it provides.

Thank each and every one of you for your efforts, contributions and generosity - we look forward to making the 2023 Campaign another huge success!
