Thank you for another successful VtSHARES Campaign Season. State employee's generosity will help to Bounce Back Vermont
As State 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 make Vermont a better place is by contributing to those in need in our neighboring communities. Every fall you have the choice to designate any amount directly from your paycheck to approved nonprofit organizations, serving Vermont communities that are close to your heart. Each donation is optional and makes a world of difference in the lives of so many.
For the 2021 campaign, we had two goals. First, we wanted to raise $235,858.48 for worthy charitable organizations benefiting from VtSHARES. Second, we wanted to increase the number of employees pledging to total 904 or more. We're thrilled to report that we exceeded both goals for a grand total of 916 employees pledging a grand total of $270,321 - amazing!!! Our sincere gratitude to all!
Through our combined efforts, through the 2021 Campaign we provided $10,417,395.72 to local organizations to help those in need since VtSHARES began. 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 charitable services. Certainly, our efforts have far exceeded any expectations imagined possible when VtSHARES began, formally known as the State Employees’ Combined Charitable Appeal (SECCA), which began 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 Employees.
We are looking forward to another successful campaign season and invite you to explore this site and the opportunities it provides.
Thank each and every one of you for your efforts, contributions and generosity in making the 2021 Campaign a huge success!
