CSU Gives Back: Join in the 2013 Colorado Combined Campaign

It's that time! The Colorado Combined Campaign is the one opportunity for CSU faculty and staff each year to support their favorite community charities — including United Way — via payroll deduction.

The 2013 campaign runs through the months of November and December, with a goal of raising $135,000 to help worthy non-profit organizations and people in need across Colorado. This year, CSU can reach the $2 million mark in total CSU contributions to the CCC since we began participating with the statewide campaign in 2000.

CSU Women's Volleyball Coach Tom Hilbert is the Honorary Chair of CSU's Colorado Combined Campaign drive this year.

About the Campaign

CCC is the only charitable payroll deduction authorized by the State of Colorado, and it is designed to help state employees easily contribute to the charities of their choice. Colorado State University employees have been able to donate to the Colorado Combined Campaign since 2000, and CSU has consistently been a statewide leader in contributing to agencies that benefit Colorado.

CSU Women's Volleyball Coach Tom Hilbert is the Honorary Chair of CSU's Colorado Combined Campaign drive this year.

Here's how to participate:

  • You can choose to donate by check, cash, or credit card, or a simple and easy automatic payroll deduction. If you choose payroll deduction, your first monthly contribution will begin January 1, 2014.
  • To donate online, visit: www.colorado.gov/ccc/. You will first need to register (even if you gave online last year, you have to register again — to protect donors' personal information, the Campaign requires a new registration for each donor every year).
  • Then you can either search the list of available charities from the more than 700 agencies participating in the Campaign — or browse through the 2013 Campaign Resource Guide to see what your options are. From there, the easy-to-follow online giving form will walk you through all necessary steps to make your gift. (A hard copy of the Campaign Resource Guide has been sent to each department office at CSU.)
  • Paper pledge forms were bundled and sent to each department office. If you did not receive a paper pledge form, please contact Katie Woodcox.


Your decision to give through the Colorado Combined Campaign is personal and up to you. It is not a condition of employment at CSU, and information about who gives, who doesn't, and which charities you decide to support will not be shared with your department, division, or co-workers. Please know that your privacy is respected, and whether you submit a hard copy donor form or give online, your personal information will only be seen by those involved with processing your giving request.
