A WORD FROM THE 2016 CAMPAIGN CHAIR
Dean Cameron United Way 2016 Chair

Fellow State of Idaho Employees:

   I am honored to be asked to serve as United We Care Chair for the 2016 charitable giving campaign. United We Care, is an important way we collectively demonstrate to Idaho how the State workforce gives back, in addition to our formal responsibilities. I am so impressed with the dedicated public service each of you exhibit. I would like to thank State of Idaho employees who collectively contributed almost $250,000 to nonprofit agencies during last year's fundraising drive. This is a wonderful example of how we can have a profound impact for good when we join together as a community.

   This year, from October 1st through 31st you can make a difference for kids, families, and individuals in our communities. Please join me and your colleagues by participating in this year's campaign.

   If you have contributed in the past, we give you our most sincere thanks. If you have not contributed before, we invite you to make a difference by joining the 2016 United We Care charitable giving campaign.

Sincerely,
Dean Cameron

ABOUT OUR STATE CAMPAIGN

Why should I participate in the Idaho State Employees' Charitable Giving Campaign?

You can be the one to change someone's life for the better.
  • You choose the amount to give and decide which organization(s) to support.
  • You choose how to give.  Options include payroll deduction, check, cash, credit card, or through agency fundraising events.

Why shouldn't I give directly to my charity of choice?

  • Simply put, efficiency.  Payroll deduction pledges allow charities to forecast income for the entire year.  United Way makes pledge information available to agencies at the conclusion of the state's annual campaign.  Bundling multiple contributions into a single payment to the various charities reduces the amount of time and money the charities would otherwise spend processing individual donations.
