This year marks the first time that city employees will have the opportunity to make their payroll contribution to the Combined Campaign online! By making your contribution online, you can
help us reduce the amount of printed materials we use, which
will aid Philadelphia’s conservation efforts. This is an important
step for Philadelphia and for the Combined Campaign!
Philadelphia has long been a leader across the nation in municipal
campaign giving, raising $36.6 million for hundreds of charities.
Despite tough economic times for all Philadelphians over the past
few years, City employees understand that every little bit helps,
and have continued to give in order to better their communities.
Last year City employees and retirees raised nearly $1 million,
and I know we will continue to uphold that spirit this year and
reach our campaign goal of $1 million. I encourage you to give
to the Combined Campaign and to reach out to those less fortunate.
That is what YOU have made “Philagenerosity” all about.
What is a Combined Campaign?
A combined campaign is a charitable campaign where the employees have a choice in giving to a variety of charitable organizations. The City's charitable campaign allows you to select organizations whose missions, programs and services are aligned with your personal values and experiences. The City's Campaign offers you an opportunity to select from charitable groups that are working in environmental, social/economic and civil rights; health and human services; children and youth education and development; relief and assistance for people in and outside of this country.
