**UPDATES FOR 2020 CAMPAIGN IN PROGRESS**
CHECK BACK SOON FOR UPDATED RESOURCES & INFORMATION!
Welcome to the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC)!
~ Join our community of advocates and givers. ~
CVC was created in 1997 under the Virginia Department of Human Resource Management of our beloved state of Virginia to promote a culture of caring and giving. Every year since then, we host a fundraising campaign for deserving charities and have helped thousands of charities and their beneficiaries. Wherever you are in the world, whether you're a citizen who wants to support a cause, a Virginia state employee, or someone who represents a company or organization, this is the perfect place for you to find relevant charities to support. Here you can help trusted local or global charities of your choice easily and securely.
Campaign Progress updated every 4 hours
CAN WE COUNT ON YOU?
$50 or more will ensure transportation to and from work for an individual re-entering our community from incarceration. Without transportation, many individuals who want to change their lives are unable to maintain stable employment. By providing a monthly bus pass, they will be able to provide for themselves, and their families without returning to their old lifestyles. It is a hand up that will make a huge difference in the lives of those who just want a second chance.
EACH ANIMAL IN TROUBLE MATTERS
$100 or more will support the cost of initial routine medical care for an incoming dog or cat. Caring For Creatures provides testing for FIV/FELV (cats) and 4-WAY Snap Tests (dogs), vaccines, treatment for internal & external parasites and spay/neuter procedure. These medical procedures are the first step in a neglected or abandoned animal's path to a healthy body and eventually a forever loving home.
HEALTHY NOURISHMENT AND HOPE
$50 or more will provide a portable bag of food to an elementary school child facing hunger so that they will have food to eat over the weekends when school meals are not available to them for ten weeks.
Every dollar donated helps provide four meals to individuals, families, children, seniors, and veterans confronting food insecurity across our greater Peninsula community.
SUPPORT GARDEN BASED EDUCATION
$200 or more can support one Charlottesville City Schools student's garden experience for the entire school year, giving that student a chance to grow in leadership, equity and connections to their community.
HELP A child WITH CANCER
GET TO CAMP
$25 or more can get a child with cancer or their sibling(s) to a full week of summer camp made just for them with everything from canoeing to arts & crafts and fishing, and of course a campfire each night under the stars. Every child should experience camp, we strive to make sure all children with cancer in Virginia have a special place to call their own, meet other patients and survivors and know they are never alone in the fight.
ALICE* NEEDS YOUR HELP!
$50 or more will truly allow you to be there for a local family living under the ALICE* threshold in their moment of need. When an unexpected crisis arises and savings are depleted, ALICE families face hard choices about which bills to pay. Help from Rappahannock United Way's ALICE fund can be the difference between paying the rent or losing your home.
*ALICE stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed - individuals who are working hard, yet earn less than the local cost of living.
Support local charities
$3 or more will help support the growing local charities throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Your gift to CVC's Undesignated Fund will be distributed equally among CVC participating local charities across Virginia. Together, we can help charities serving local regions make an even greater impact.
Getting to work
$100 or more will provide a one month GRTC bus pass and a DMV ID and birth certificate so that a newly released returning citizen can get to work! Helping our participants find jobs and providing them with the tools to get there is at the core of our mission. Thank you for supporting OAR of Richmond.
