Annually, Sacramento County employees make sure nonprofit charities globally and locally are supported. The 2017 Sacramento County Employee Giving Campaign was no exception. To report on the success, the Campaign’s Chair and Director for the Department of Revenue Recovery, Connie Ahmed, presented the campaign results on January 23 to the Board of Supervisors.
During the month of October, Sacramento County employees generously participated in the Employee Giving Campaign. This year’s theme was “Sacramento County Opens Hearts” and highlights employees’ support of causes that improve the quality of life in their local communities and the world around them.
This campaign also included an online donation system that expanded the County’s paperless initiative and streamlined donations through only payroll deductions, and credit/debit card contributions.
Donations were provided to the five federations of charitable organizations, as well as 17 non-profit Sacramento County programs that serve our communities. The grand total of the 2017 donations came to $362,042.
