The 2020 State Employee Charitable Campaign Application is available now and due on Friday, April 3, 2020 @ noon CST. Typically, a hard copy submission is required, along with a digital copy on a USB drive, but those restrictions have changed in light of the impact of Coronavirus COVID-19. So, for 2020 only, applicants can submit digitally via the form below, and forgo the hard copy. It is the responsibility of each applicant to confirm our receipt of your application. Please email lwhite@uwgalv.org following your submission to confirm receipt (because sometimes technology can fail) and we will let you know that we have it. If you have any questions, call Lindsey White at (409) 750-5051.
