Lead Coordinators FAQ

A.

There are several good reasons to give to your favorite charity through the CCC:

  • Non-profits know early in the year what their annual revenue from CCC will be, and helps them plan their programs

 

  • Payroll deduction, available to all State employees through the CCC, is an
    easy way to give- you won’t miss the money you don’t see. Through payroll
    deduction most of us can be more generous than a one-time donation

 

  • Non-profits appreciate that the CCC’s low administrative costs are only
    15%, adding additional funds back to the charities

 

  • Your donation through the CCC has a greater impact when it is combined
    with the generosity of your fellow co-workers in the State
