William & Mary

Message from Vice President Anna Martin

Full Description
Dear Colleagues,

Have you ever delivered a hot meal to a homebound senior? Have you ever given a group of children a safe place to play away from the street or helped a disabled adult realize their potential to become an active member of their community? Have you ever provided a homeless family with a warm and safe place to sleep? If you have given to the CVC, the answer is yes.

Each year, the Combined Virginia Campaign gives us the opportunity to make a difference in our communities. Our goal this year is to have at least 322 members of the William & Mary family contribute to CVC. We chose this number to commemorate 322 years of William & Mary.

Every dollar counts and there is no easier way to be a positive force for change than to contribute through CVC. You can select from the list of charities and give via payroll deduction or credit card (this will direct you to the Employee Direct site for online giving). Or you can donate via paper form or by contacting [[cacostello,Carla Costello]]. Many of you will be pleased to learn that Heritage Humane Society is back on the list of charities!

To donate using the Employee Direct site, you will need your employee identification number located on your health insurance form, to create an account. If you have registered with this site before (for example when making health insurance changes during open enrollment) you can log in with your username and password. If you have any questions about using Employee Direct, please contact HR at 221-3169. If you pledge your CVC donation via Employee Direct now through October 15, you will be automatically entered to win 4 one-day park hopper passes to Disney World.

Thank you in advance and we hope that the W&M community will once again come together to serve the greater good. Please give from the heart and make a difference.

Anna B. Martin
Vice President for Administration
The College of William and Mary
