Colorado Combined Campaign runs through Dec. 31

The 2015 Colorado Combined Campaign runs from November through December 31.


The Campaign

The Colorado Combined Campaign is our one opportunity each year — as employees of the State of Colorado — to make personal charitable contributions. Last year, Colorado state employees donated more than $2 million to the statewide campaign, supporting more than 600 non-profit charities that benefit Colorado. CSU faculty and staff were the most generous contributors to the entire statewide effort, donating more than any other state agency or university.

How to Participate

  • Donate online with a one-time or recurring credit card donation or with payroll deductions. Payroll contributions will begin Jan. 1, 2016. You will have to register each year (even if you donated last year) — as a requirement of the campaign.
  • You can also donate by check, cash, or credit card using a paper pledge form. Forms are sent to each department office.
  • Use the 2015 Campaign Resource Guide to browse the list of more than 700 agencies participating in the campaign.

2015 Campaign Co-chairs

In celebrating 100 years of shared governance, chairs from Classified Personnel Council, Faculty Council and Administrative Professional Council will lead the campaign this year. Read the letter from the chairs.

Campaign FAQs


Your decision to give through the Colorado Combined Campaign is personal and up to you. It is not a condition of employment at CSU, and information about who gives, who doesn’t, and which charities you decide to support will not be shared with your department, division or co-workers. Please know that your privacy is respected, and whether you submit a hard copy donor form or give online, your personal information will only be seen by those involved with processing your giving request.
