UVA President Declares Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign Day

Posted: Updated:

The University of Virginia is encouraging its employees to use the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) to support their favorite charities.

President Teresa Sullivan declared Friday CVC Day to jumpstart the effort. The annual workplace giving program allows university and state employees to pledge donations to charities of their choice.

Organizers say the campaign shows solidarity.

“Collectively that's what it's about. It's about the impact that we as University of Virginia employees have when we all come together and give just the littlest amount,” said Jim Fitzgerald, chair of 2013 CVC at UVA.

Last year, UVA employees contributed more than $1 million through the campaign.

Anyone interested in participating can donate via payroll deduction or using a pledge card.
