Employee Giving Campaign

The Central Piedmont Employee Giving Campaign provides you, an employee of the college, an opportunity to express your "why".

Why do you choose to work at Central Piedmont and support our students?

100% of employee campaign gifts support student scholarships, the student emergency fund, programs, employee professional development needs, and more.

Your dedicated work as an employee transforms lives and strengthens our community. Thank you in advance for expressing your "why" with a gift to the college.

$60 for Central Piedmont's 60th Anniversary

The Office of Institutional Advancement has a special challenge for the 202324 employee giving campaign. In honor of the college's 60th anniversary this September, our goal is to raise $60,000 through the Employee Giving Campaign between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.

To do so, we challenge every employee to contribute $5 a month, or $60 total to the campaign. If each employee contributes $60, we will surpass our goal.
Imagine the impact of 100% participation from Central Piedmont employees. Use the links below to make a payroll deduction, credit card donation, or gift by mail.

I give because I'm a part of the greater Central Piedmont community. Because I wear that badge, it also means I get the opportunity to support this community with not only my knowledge and service but also my gifts.

  2. Student Scholarships provides students in need of tuition assistance the opportunity for a better life.
  3. Where Most Needed enables the college to respond to emerging needs and to address priorities.
  4. Other:
  • Instructional Programs support particular programs at the discretion of the Program Chair with the approval of the Campus Directors and Vice President for Instruction.
  • Campus Funds benefit a particular campus and are allocated at the discretion of the Campus Directors and Vice President for Instruction.
  • Faculty-Staff Development helps employees stay at the top of their fields.

Matching Gifts

Numerous corporations will match employees' charitable contributions by often doubling the amount of the original gift. Some companies will match gifts made by retired employees. Click here to learn if your company or your spouse's employer has a matching gift policy. Matching gifts are counted with your donation and can place you in a higher giving level. Please reference the Foundation's EIN #56-0890420 when making your matching gift request with your employer.

Honor and Memorial Gifts

The Employee Giving Campaign provides the opportunity to make a gift in honor or in memory of others. If requested, a notice of your gift is sent to the honoree or family members of your choice. You may also choose to designate your gift to an existing scholarship fund established by, in honor of, or in memory of Central Piedmont employees or family members. If you choose this option, please include the name of the fund on the pledge or donation form.
