This past June, we sent an email to charities who were accepted into the 2020-2021 NJECC, asking for promotional information for us to use through this year’s New Jersey Employees Charitable Campaign. Thank you to the charities who completed that form and for providing us with the promotional information we requested.
This year’s NJECC runs September 15 through December 31, 2020. Everything we are doing this year is taking place virtually, online. We have a lot of fun events planned to engage New Jersey employees in giving and supporting organizations like yours, including “Virtual Charity Fairs and Cause Weeks.” You can learn about all of these fun events on the NJECC donation portal at www.charities.org/NJECC.
How do the virtual charity fairs work and how can your charity be involved?
During the 16-weeklong NJECC campaign, we will feature 14 specific causes and NJECC charities that address those causes. Click here for a schedule of when each cause week will take place.
For each of these cause weeks, we have created ready-to-use employee messages, e-cards, and materials for campaign coordinators to promote these events to employees and help draw traffic to featured charities (those who completed the form we sent in June). You can see what type of materials we have created for campaign coordinators by clicking here. While those materials are created for campaign coordinators, your nonprofit is welcome to use/incorporate any of these materials as well since all of the messaging is geared towards the employee donors.
We are using web pages on the NJECC donation portal to hold each week’s Virtual Charity Fair where we will feature videos and success stories from NJECC charities addressing the featured cause week. You can see how we are featuring charities in this virtual charity fair on this page: https://njecc.americascharities.stratuslive.com/virtual-charity-fair-featured-cause. Each week, we will update that page to feature a new cause, along with charities associated with that cause.
To help you promote the NJECC to your constituents, please click here for our NJECC Nonprofit Toolkit. We understand how spread thin nonprofits are, so our goal with this toolkit is to make it as easy as possibly for you to connect with you New Jersey donors and make sure they know how to support your charity through the NJECC.
