U.Va. Workshop To Help Local Organizations Become Part Of Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign

CVC Heart LogoFebruary 12, 2002-- The University of Virginia will hold a free workshop -- "How to Apply for Inclusion in the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign" -- for area nonprofit organizations interested in participating in the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign.

It will be held Monday, Feb. 25, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the South Meeting Room of Newcomb Hall. During the workshop, representatives of the state CVC office, Piedmont Virginia Community College, and U.Va. will describe the steps nonprofit organizations must complete to be eligible to participate in the campaign. They also will offer tips on how organizations can promote awareness of their services before the 2002 campaign begins in the fall.

Authorized by the governor, the campaign provides an opportunity for state employees each fall to donate to their favorite charities. To be included in the campaign, charities must complete a screening process that involves providing evidence of qualifying services, non-discriminatory and non-political practices, and administrative overhead under 25 percent.

"People who want to help those in need should make sure their favorite charities know about the workshop," said Ida Lee Wootten, interim director of U.Va.’s Community Relations Office, which is sponsoring the workshop. "Charities can increase their donations by participating in the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign."

Nonprofit organizations must apply for inclusion in the 2002 campaign by April 30. Information about the campaign can be found on the state CVC Web site at www.cvc.vipnet.org or U.Va.’s site, www.virginia.edu/cvc/
