Thanks to State Employees, We've Exceeded Our Goals for the 2022 VtSHARES Campaign 'Change is Transformational'
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 2022 Campaign, we had two goals: first, we wanted to increase the number of employees pledging to total 966; and second, we hoped to raise $270,371 for worthy charitable organizations benefiting from VtSHARES. With the extreme generosity of State employees, we're pleased to say that we exceeded both of those goals! State employees pledged a total of $283,565, which exceeded our contributor goal by 77 and contribution goal by $13,194 – amazing! Can you imagine the transformational change made from those incredible pledges in our 14 local communities?
Through our combined efforts to date, $10,701,432.99 has been pledged by State employees to assist local communities in need since this employee platform 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 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 employees.
Once again, we thank all State 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!
