Combined Community Campaign

Making Sense of Your Charitable Giving Choices

Here's all the information you need to make appropriate decisions about your charitable giving.

What is the Combined Community Campaign?

The Combined Community Campaign—Help Our UMUC Family, Help Our Community—is a joint philanthropic initiative that comprises the UMUC Faculty and Staff Campaign and the Maryland Charity Campaign. It gives UMUC staff and faculty the opportunity to support UMUC students and programs and not-for-profit organizations throughout the state of Maryland.

What is the Faculty and Staff Campaign?

The UMUC Faculty and Staff Campaign is an annual fundraising effort that allows faculty and staff to provide financial support for students and programs across the university. Gifts from faculty and staff support a number of graduate, undergraduate, and military-affiliated scholarship funds, as well as the UMUC Arts Program.

What is the Maryland Charity Campaign?

The Maryland Charity Campaign is a workplace charitable-giving program that offers state employees the opportunity to contribute to charities throughout Maryland by using the convenience of payroll deduction or making outright gifts. Currently, more than 900 charities participate in the campaign.

How do the Maryland Charity and the Faculty and Staff Campaigns fit together?

The Maryland Charity Campaign and the UMUC Faculty and Staff Campaign both enable employees to give back and make a difference in the lives and futures of the citizens of Maryland and students at UMUC. This year we are asking faculty and staff to consider making two gifts—one to support our UMUC family through the Faculty and Staff Campaign, and another to support our Maryland community through the Maryland Charity Campaign. Each gift makes an impact and is truly appreciated.

How can I give?
