Pick your charity through Colorado Combined Campaign

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.

The 2017 Colorado Combined Campaign runs through Dec. 31.

  • DONATE ONLINE here with a one-time or recurring credit card donation or with payroll deductions. Payroll contributions will begin Jan. 1, 2018. 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 2017 Campaign Resource Guide to browse the list of more than 700 agencies participating in the campaign.

2017 Campaign Co-chairs

In celebrating more than 100 years of shared governance, chairs from Classified Personnel Council, Faculty Council and Administrative Professional Council will lead the campaign.

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.

Giving incentives

To thank those who give back so much to our community, CSU faculty and staff who contribute to the Colorado Combined Campaign will have an opportunity to win this year’s grand prize. Everyone who makes a pledge during the campaign will be eligible to win a free CSU parking pass for the 2018-19 academic year (donated by CSU Parking Services).
