Message from the State Chair

As Secretary of the Department of Administration, I am honored to serve as your chairman of the 2014 State Employees Combined Campaign. You have an excellent opportunity through the Combined Campaign to follow your passion and give to charities that greatly impact North Carolinians…your gift-your passion.

I have seen the beneficial work of charities in my hometown of Rocky Mount and I have been a passionate giver to the Boy Scouts of America. Like me, state employees from all backgrounds and beliefs are united by opportunities to support their passion through the Combined Campaign. Personal barriers are broken-down and relationships within agencies, divisions and departments are improved.

Giving to support your passion through the Combined Campaign is a unique way to improve the quality of life of our State.  The Combined Campaign offers giving though payroll deductions which removes a critical step between state employees and charities, contributions are bundled which lowers administrative costs for charities, and charities are empowered to meet people’s needs before those needs become exacerbated problems in their lives.

Also, the Combined Campaign gives state employees a sense of personal satisfaction. They are assured that their gift is benefiting a charity of their choosing; a charity that has been vetted and certified as a legitimate charitable organization.

Please join me in making a gift to support your passion through the State Employees Combined Campaign. I would like to thank you in advance for your support. It’s your gift, now follow your passion!


Bill Daughtridge, Jr., Secretary
Department of Administration
