August 2020

Dear Fellow State Employees:

I hope you are all safe and doing well during these unprecedented times.

The heart and generosity of Connecticut State Employees has never been stronger
as we work together to address the impact COVID has created. In the spirit of
finding solutions and maintaining great momentum, we are thrilled to announce that
Comptroller Kevin Lembo is returning as the 2020 Statewide Chair of the
Connecticut State Employees Campaign for Charitable Giving (CSEC).

“This campaign is an uplifting reminder of the good in so many people,” Lembo
said. “Connecticut state employees and retirees have generously given millions over
the years to better their neighborhoods, care for children and seniors, protect our
environment and make our state a better place.”

The CSEC provides state employees and retirees an opportunity to contribute to
hundreds of qualified nonprofit charities through the convenience of payroll
deductions. Since 1993, employees and retirees have donated between $550,000
and $2 million annually, directly benefitting local and national charitable
organizations. It is through your generosity that people in our community are
receiving the vital services needed to improve their quality of life.

As we navigate this unprecedented crisis, the CSEC needs your philanthropic
support more than ever. In donating to the charitable organizations listed in this
directory, you help make possible a wide range of critical services such as shelter
for the homeless, food for the hungry, important medical research and much more.

Join us to make a lasting impact. Thank you for your support.

Betsy McDermont, Office of the State Comptroller
2020 Connecticut State Employees Campaign Committee Chair

The Connecticut State Employees Campaign for Charitable Giving (CSEC) is the once a year opportunity for
Connecticut state employees to contribute to non-profit charities in the workplace. Through the CSEC, you can
make a single gift to help people locally, throughout the nation and around the world. The contributions made by
you and your fellow employees make possible a wide range of vital services: shelter for the homeless, protection
of the environment, research for the cure of diseases, care for both children and seniors. These are only a
fraction of the services provided by the nearly 700 charities listed in this directory.
