Charitable Campaign Is Underway
When it comes to charitable giving, every dollar donated to the Georgia State Charitable Contributions Program helps a worthy cause.
The program is a benefit for State of Georgia and University System employees that allows contributions to the charity of choice through pre-tax payroll deduction or a one-time donation. With more than 700 local, state, and national nonprofit organizations to choose from, there’s something that speaks to everyone’s altruistic spirit.
This year’s theme is “Making a Difference in Georgia.” The 2023-24 campaign is now open and runs through Thursday, Nov. 16.
“We are excited about this year’s Charitable Campaign and continuing the great momentum from previous years,” said Byron Fitch, chair of the 2023 campaign and director in Strategic Consulting. “Our Georgia Tech community continues to give generously and takes great pride in making a real impact on our surrounding community.” Last year, Georgia Tech received the Governor’s Award for contributing the highest number of donations among all USG institutions.
Giving online through OneUSG Connect is the preferred method because it is confidential, secure, and simple to use.
- Log in to OneUSG Connect and select “Make SCCP Contribution” on the “State Charitable Contributions Program” button in the upper left portion of the Employee Self Service screen.
- Select “Make Charitable Campaign Pledge” and follow the instructions.
- Choose “Payroll Deduction” to set up the amount you choose to pledge in equal installments. Deductions will begin in January 2024.
- If you would rather download a pledge form, you can complete it and arrange to drop off your check with your unit ambassador or to Byron Fitch, Campaign Chair (37 Uncle Heinie Way, A. French Building, Room 101). (Do not send via campus mail.)
