The campaign which runs from September through December each year, provides state and local municipal employees with the opportunity to contribute to more than 1,100 charities through payroll deduction.
Commissioner Hammer and President Kesselman were honored for their commitment to the 2016 campaign. Their energy, dedication, and support helped increase the credibility and visibility of the campaign.
The Commissioner and President gave out the Chairperson’s award to departments that demonstrated outstanding dedication, exemplary participation, and for exceeding the previous year’s fundraising goal. The awards went to the Office of Information Technology, NJ State Commission of Investigation, the City of Trenton, The College of NJ, Stockton University, and NJ Institute of Technology.
Susan O’Brien presented the Campaign Manager Award to the following coordinators for team leadership, dedication and going above and beyond to promote the ECC.

The Campaign also acknowledged and thanked The Credit Union of New Jersey for partnering with the NJECC. The ability to provide campaign materials for the coordinators would not be possible without the generous support from the credit union.
2015 Campaign Chair David Hespe, Commissioner of Education recognized employees at the event along with Campaign Manager Susan O’Brien and Steering Committee representative Jamie DePasquale from Community Health Charities.
State and local employees raised thousands of dollars through the NJ Employees Charitable Campaign that benefit local, national and international non-profit charitable organizations.

Choosing to Make a Difference
By Rochelle Hendricks
Secretary of Higher Education
Each year, during this season of giving, we have the chance to help people who are in need, who can benefit from our kindness and generosity. Year after year, our higher education institutions play an important role in strengthening local communities beyond the campus by supporting organizations that help others every day.
Employees and staff at our public institutions can help by participating in the New Jersey Employees Charitable Campaign, which I serve as Co-Chair with Department of Education Commissioner David Hespe. I invite those of you at our public institutions to consider making a donation, either with a single contribution or as a deduction from your paycheck. The deadline for making a donation is December 31. Simply log onto the website here cymbalta price. Donations are voluntary, confidential and tax deductible. You can make a general gift or select a particular organization from a list of 1,100 groups.
There has been a great deal of enthusiasm on campuses for this charitable campaign – especially at Stockton University which has already exceeded its fundraising goals. Stockton hosted a special celebration called “Just Desserts” on Monday, November 30, raising money for charitable service groups and the Stockton Foundation, which directly helps students. Congratulations to Stockton!
Finally, I’d like to wish everyone in the higher education community a very happy, healthy holiday season. Enjoy yourselves over the winter break, and come back rested and ready for the spring semester!
Way to go, Stockton community! Monday’s “Just Desserts” celebration in support of Stockton’s New Jersey Employees Charitable Campaign was a great success! Thanks to the delicious cakes, pies, sticky buns, and cupcakes from local bakeries, we gathered $562 in donations that will be forwarded to the Stockton Foundation via the NJECC. Fantastic!
The ECC planning team would again like to thank Chartwells and President Kesselman for their generous support of Monday’s event.
Even better news: Stockton’s total donation amount now stands at $48,427! We are at 97% of our goal of $50,000 — just $1,573 away! It’s not too late to help us reach our record goal. For as little as $2 per pay (via payroll deduction), you can really impact the lives of so many in our community. The need is so great, so please consider contributing to the campaign.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation wants to express its appreciation to the numerous charities that participated in our New Jersey Employee Charitable Campaign Fair which was held on November 17, 2015. As a result of their support and participation, the day was a success. Also, the NJDOT welcomed a local celebrity, Trenton’s own; Boomer, the mascot from the Trenton Thunder Baseball team. All of our guests encouraged our DOT employees to support the charity of their choice. It was a great day for NJDOT. Thanks NJDOT family! Job well done!
