Welcome to the 2020 43rd annual VtSHARES campaign season!
This is the time of year when we all invest in our fellow Vermonters by donating to charitable organizations designed to help those in need. Every year Vermont State employees demonstrate the remarkable generosity of spirit through their donations to VtSHARES. This year, we have two goals. First, we want to raise $225,593.44 for all the worthy charitable organizations benefiting from VtSHARES. Second, we want to increase the number of employees pledging to total 940 or more. Let's all come together to take part.
Through our combined efforts, we have provided $9,911,738.41 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 was established in 1977 as the State Employees’ Combined Charitable Appeal (SECCA).
The economy and environment have continued to be hard on our State, and supporting those in need has always been a trademark of State Employees. We are looking forward to a successful year.
In 2019, 891 employees chose to use the VtSHARES Campaign as their preferred way of making voluntary donations to local nonprofits of their choice. The total amount contributed in 2019 was $225,543.44.
Thank each and every one of you for your efforts, contributions and generosity in making the 2019 Campaign a huge success! Please join us in making the 2020 Campaign even better, thank you.
