Join Us. Give Today.
We are all tied together as a community and combined charities focuses on finding federations of charities in your community, so that you can make an impact in your own community. By helping each other locally we can see the difference that is happening around us.
There are 37 approved charitable federations to choose from in the 2016 Campaign that represent hundreds of charities working in communities across Minnesota. Many of these federations allow you to designate your gift to a specific charity or nonprofit group.
Signing up for payroll deduction is a convenient way of giving to multiple organizations at once, allows the charities you support to better be able to budget and plan for their next year, and it reduces administrative costs for the charities. Payroll Deduction also gives you an easy place to locate all of your charitable contributions for tax reporting purposes.
Campaign Now Underway
The Minnesota State Employees' Combined Charities Campaign began October 1, 2016 and ends October 31, 2016. You can find the federations that are currently participating and instructions on how to donate. Make your donation now!
