Still time to give through the Colorado Combined Campaign - and the chance to win a car lease

December 15, 2011

Donors to the Colorado Combined Campaign who want to be eligible for the annual car raffle conducted by the United Way of Larimer County have until 4:30 p.m. Dec. 16 to make a qualifying donation.

The official CSU campaign has been extended only through the end of the year, and pledges will take effect with the January pay cycle.

Learn more and make your pledge online.

All CSU faculty and staff also should have received a printed pledge form through their department, for those who prefer that to the online option.

Contributors who designate a Colorado Combined Campaign pledge for the United Way of Larimer County - and/or any of the organizations in the Campaign Resource Guide numbered in the 6000s that receive support from United Way of Larimer County - will be eligible to win a 2-year lease on a 2012 Chevy Cruze, donated by Dellenbach Motors. Those who make an annual contribution between $156-259.99 to United Way of Larimer County or one of its agency partners will have one entry in the drawing; those who contribute $260 or more will earn two raffle entries.

All CSU contributors also will be automatically entered in a prize drawing for fun incentives including a $100 King Soopers gift card, gift cards for businesses in the Lory Student Center, and Cam the Ram bobbleheads personally signed by CSU CCC Honorary Chair Tim Miles. The deadline for the final prize CSU drawing has been extended to the last working day in December so that all campus contributors will have a chance to win.

The real winners are the charities that benefit from the contributions of CSU faculty and staff. Among this year’s CCC supporters at CSU is Sandy Dahlberg, program manager for the Global Social and Sustainable Enterprise program in the College of Business. Sandy directs her contribution to support the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program.

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to participate in CSU’s Colorado Combined Campaign and am happy to donate via payroll deduction to my favorite local organization: the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program,” she says.

The RMRP rescues, rehabilitates, and releases injured birds of prey, including eagles, owls, hawks, and falcons, and through its comprehensive Environmental Education Program, teaches the importance of preserving wildlife and wild places for future generations.

“By giving a small amount each month, my contribution can add up to make a bigger difference in helping our wonderful feathered friends in need.  Thanks, CSU, for making it so easy to help!”
