The Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) is an annual workplace giving campaign for all state employees.
In 2011-12, Virginia Tech employees donated $272,697 (of the total $3.8 million state employees raised) to the CVC, ranking fourth in overall giving across the state. Nearly 1,300 charities benefit from the funds donated.
“It’s very impressive that we’ve been able to meet and surpass our goals with nearly 1,187 employees participating,” said Carol Bishop, the CVC coordinator and business operations coordinator in the Department of Human Resources. The 2012 CVC campaign kicked off Sept. 26. This year’s goal is to raise $300,000.
