Alabama Department of Senior Services Commissioner Jean Brown announced today that the State Combined Charitable Campaign (SCC) has exceeded its 2021 goal. Gov. Kay Ivey appointed Brown to serve as SCC chairman of the campaign “All Together Alabama; Alabama Strong.”
“Time and time again, we see Alabamians step up and lend a helping hand to their neighbors in need,” Gov. Ivey said. “I am proud to see that our state employees surpassed this year’s goal in order to better our communities and help some of the most vulnerable. There is not another state that matches the loving spirit of Alabama.”
Thanks to the generosity of state employees across Alabama, the SCC raised $793,33.01, surpassing its goal of $780,000.
“In these challenging times, it is inspiring to see the generous spirit of Alabama State Employees who care so much about others in their communities,” Brown said. “I am proud to serve as chairman of these efforts and appreciate the leadership and example set by Gov. Ivey.”
The SCC allows Alabama State Employees to give to their favorite charity or charities through payroll deduction. The SCC supports the work of approved charitable agencies and organizations. These agencies fight disease, make life more meaningful for the young and aged, assist the impoverished, and help people become economically self-sufficient.
Oversight of the campaign is provided by a steering committee composed of a chair appointed by the governor, and six other members representing all three branches of state government. Local organization and administration are accomplished through 10 Local Agency Review Committees (LARCs) comprised of state employees throughout Alabama. Local campaign managers support LARCs, ensuring local input from agency review of distribution of funds and other campaign procedures.
Local voluntary charitable health and human care agencies or federations may apply for funding.
