Each year, as we approach the season of thanks and giving, we offer members of the College of Staten Island community the opportunity to participate in The CUNY Campaign for Voluntary Charitable Giving. This annual Campaign makes it possible for you to support your favorite non-profit organizations or discover new ones, from a choice of more than 1,100 organizations, that align with your interests and passions, including our own CSI Foundation.

The theme of this year’s CUNY-wide Campaign is The Power of One. The Strength of Many. The campaign offers you a convenient way to give to your favorite charities by check, credit card, or payroll deduction.

There are two ways to participate:

The Website is designed to simplify your donor experience. Whether you plan to replicate your pledge from a prior year or as a first-time participant, you will need to register your pledge on the Website or on paper. For assistance or any questions, please contact me at 718.982.2201 or maryanne.semon@csi.cuny.edu.

This employee-giving opportunity to support nonprofit organizations that provide a wide array of services comes only once a year. I encourage you to support this important Campaign by making your pledges before the deadline of Thursday, Dec. 22. Payroll deductions will start in January 2017. Early-bird incentive: All CUNY Campaign participants who submit a pledge by Friday, Dec. 2 will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a FitBit Blaze.

Thank you for your participation in this Campaign that makes a difference for so many.
