About

The Combined Charitable Campaign, also referred to as the CCC, consolidates many charitable campaigns into one, asking State of Ohio employees to voluntarily donate through payroll deductions or a one-time gift.

Contact the Campaign Coordinating Organization at stateofohiocc@uwcentralohio.org or by phone at 614-965-1666.    



Meet Members of the State Steering Committee

The State of Ohio Combined Charitable Campaign steering committee is comprised of more than a dozen state employees, representing both labor and management. As defined by the Ohio Administrative Code, the committee is responsible for the annual review and approval of applications from charitable organizations for participation in the campaign; review and approval of annual campaign materials; oversight and approval of the campaign budget; and the establishment of policies and procedures for participation in and conduct of the annual campaign, including guidelines on appropriate solicitations. 

The campaign goal for the 2021 campaign is $2.2 million. Last year, 1,031 charities representing health and human services organizations with causes that include animals in need, the elderly, homeless, health issues, disaster relief, and the environment benefited from the generosity of more than 6,300 state employees raising $
2,257,142 million, surpassing the $2.1 million goal. For information about adding a charitable organization to the annual campaign, click on the tab "Charities Interested in Joining the CCC."

Donor Recognition Items

What happened to the donor recognition items?
In previous years, Combined Charitable Campaign contributors who met specific pledging requirements were
thanked with a recognition item unless they declined the gift when pledging. Due to logistical challenges with
delivering the recognition items created by the high number of employees working from home, and a commitment
to keeping the CCC overhead percentage as low as possible, the Steering Committee elected not to offer donor
recognition items for the 2021 campaign. This will allow CCC charities to receive the highest percentage of your
donation as they work to recover from the pandemic.
