"The raising, given voluntarily and freely by millions of our fellow Americans, is a unique American tradition...Philanthropy, charity, giving voluntarily and it what you like, but it is truly a jewel of an American tradition." 
— John F. Kennedy

Through the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign, each of us has a chance to have a positive influence in our society. Agencies supported by the CVC are making an enormous difference in many lives in our community, our country and around the world.

This year's Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) gives each of us the opportunity to keep the spirit of kindness alive, and to lend a hand. The CVC is the only state-supported charitable giving program for faculty and staff at JMU, and through this campaign, we unite with thousands of other state employees to make a positive impact in our communities.

The red envelope, whether it is hand-delivered or electronic, signifies the need in our community and our commitment to help others. Please consider making a donation to the campaign. When you give to the CVC, 100% of your gift reaches your designated agency. I hope that everyone in the JMU community will participate in this year's campaign, and help meet the ever-expanding needs of these organizations and the people they support.
