The “Season of Giving” is upon us. Every year at this time, we offer members of the CSI community the opportunity to participate in the CUNY Campaign for Voluntary Charitable Giving. As you may know, this annual Campaign includes multiple options for supporting our favorite nonprofit organizations with diverse missions. There are dozens of worthy organizations to choose from, including our own CSI Foundation.

This campaign offers you a convenient way to give to your favorite charities by check, credit card, or payroll deduction. The theme of this year’s Campaign is The Power of One. I invite you to go online for more details. If you have any questions, please contact  Jennifer Towles, Campaign Coordinator, at 718.982.2588. The Website has been updated to simplify your donor experience. There is no longer a continuous donor designation so you will need to register, even if you participated in previous years.

This employee-giving opportunity to impact those nonprofit groups that provide services and resources to our community and our world comes only once a year. I encourage you to support this critical Campaign by making your pledges before the deadline of Friday, Dec. 5, 2014. Payroll deductions will start in January 2015.

Thank you for your active involvement in this worthwhile Campaign that makes a difference for so many.
