Cary, N.C. – The Town of Cary is accepting applications for participation in the Town’s Combined Giving Campaign from qualified organizations until 5 p.m. on Friday, July 14. The annual campaign is an employee payroll deduction program aimed at connecting employees with non-profit organizations and causes in the community. A qualified organization is a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization that holds and maintains a currently valid designation by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501(c)(3) organization and is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions under Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code and any relevant laws of the State of North Carolina.
Complete information on participation criteria is available by visiting the Town of Cary Human Resources Department at 316 N. Academy St., on the second floor, or by emailing or calling Kim Berthiaume at Kim.Berthiaume@townofcary.org or (919) 469-4074. As in years past, the Combined Giving Campaign will feature multiple charities for employees to direct their contributions, offering a wide variety of causes and groups from which to choose. Funds donated by Town employees – nearly $60,000 in 2016 – not only help the many people touched by these contributions, but also make the community a better place to live and work.
