The on-line pledging tool is not available at this time as the 2015 Campaign has drawn to a close.

Does this mean that I cannot donate to the Campaign now?

Not at all! If you are a state retiree, new employee, or a State of Connecticut employee who has just discovered the State's donation arrangement, you CAN still participate. Campaign staff can accept and process donations at ANY time during the year. If you wish to participate in the Charitable Giving Campaign, simply contact the Campaign office at 860-402-8430 or email Jan at Jan.Gwudz@ct.gov  or Joyce at jlebaron@healthcharities.org  for more details. Additionally, the on-line pledging tool will again be available when the 2016 Campaign starts on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. This summer, be sure to look for more information here or watch for email updates from your agency campaign coordinator.

What We Do

THE CONNECTICUT STATE EMPLOYEES' CAMPAIGN FOR CHARITABLE GIVING (CSEC) is the once-a-year opportunity for Connecticut State Employees to contribute to non-profit charities through their workplace. Through the CSEC you can make a single gift to help people locally, throughout the nation, and around the world. The contributions made by you and your fellow employees make possible a wide range of vital services: shelter for the homeless, protection of the environment, research for cures of diseases, care for both children and seniors. These are only a fraction of the services provided by the nearly 700 charities listed on this website.

PARTNERS FOR A BETTER WORLD

Success Story:

PARTNERS FOR A BETTER WORLD represents many charitable organizations offering opportunities to CT State Employees through the annual charitable giving campaign. Its mission is to help these charitable organizations connect to donors. The charities provide a broad spectrum of answers to basic human needs and development. Please take a moment to see the organizations whose work in CT has made a significant impact in your own communities and abroad. Partners for a Better World thanks donors who, by generous donations, help charities reach their missions and goals. This federation reaches out to you who may not be familiar with this work. Below are two brief but powerful examples:

 Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC is a national nonprofit founded to advance civil and human rights for Asian Americans and to build and promote a fair and equitable society for all. Advocacy programs include immigration and immigrant rights, voting rights, census and data collection, litigation and the Community Partners Network.

Jes PhillipAmong its many programs, AAJC holds a Youth Leadership Summit to bring diverse college students from across the country to Washington, D.C., to learn how to advocate for racial justice and civil rights.

STUDENT JES PHILLIP shared her experience of being the "unknown Micronesian student" and being forced to show her green card [at college campuses], in order to be granted admission, regardless of her grades. After the summit, Jes took these lessons back home where she organized a meeting for Micronesian students, encouraging them to pursue higher education and showing them how to apply for scholarships. She says, "It was a wonderful experience stemming from my time in Washington."

The Center for Victims of Torture (CVT) has helped more than 30,000 survivors find the courage and hope to rebuild theirunknown city lives. Once such survivor is a 10-year old Syrian girl named Jana, who was kidnapped to force her father to turn himself in. Jana was grabbed by a man, thrown into a pickup with other screaming children and all were put in a dark underground dungeon for 22 days. The children were beaten. They were given dirty water and only one boiled egg to eat per day.

When Jana was released, she developed severe PTSD symptoms, depression and anxiety. She couldn't forget the soldier's face, his big moustache, shaved head, his harsh voice. Through individual psychotherapy sessions at CVT Jordan, Jana was helped to process her trauma. She learned how to cope with her fears, isolation and sadness. Jana also received individual physiotherapy sessions and was referred to a social worker for medical and social needs. With CVT's help Jana has made continuous progress, and now Jana is back to being a child again.

Your generous donations make this work possible and allow assistance to be provided to those who really need your support. Please check out Partners for a Better World and their participating charities in the Charitable Giving Directory or on this website.

A Message From the Statewide Campaign Chair

Lembo


Dear Fellow State Employee:

Welcome to the Connecticut State Employees' Campaign for Charitable Giving (CSEC).

I'm excited to announce that -- for the first time ever -- state employees and retirees can now donate online -- right here through the campaign website!


Connecticut state employees and retirees already have a long legacy of charitable giving - donating millions over the years to organizations that deliver shelter for the homeless, environmental protections, important medical research and care for children and seniors. This new online donation system will make it even easier to serve your community and demonstrate our values as public servants.

As the statewide campaign chair, I'm calling on my fellow state employees and retirees to take advantage of this new online giving site and make this a record-breaking year!

Sincerely,

Kevin Lembo
State Comptroller

Statewide Campaign Chair
