Meet the State Steering Committee

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. 

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the campaign, which benefits more than 1,200 local, statewide and global nonprofits. Last year, state of Ohio employees donated more than $2.6 million to health and human services organizations with causes that include animals in need, the elderly, homeless, health issues, disaster relief, and the environment. For information about adding a charitable organization to the annual campaign, click on the "Join the CCC" tab on the campaign home page.

Thank you for your interest in the State of Ohio Combined Charitable Campaign (CCC). The campaign coordinating organization welcomes the opportunity to expand its charity listing with new charitable organizations and looks forward to working with returning charities.  
A few of the basic requirements for participation in the CCC include:  
* Organization must be a member of one of the federations that participate in the campaign, 
* Organization must be a 501(c)3 charity, and 
* Charity must be registered with the Ohio Attorney General's Office. 
If your charity is already a member of one of the participating federations and meets the qualifications above, please communicate with your federation representative about the application process, who will help you prepare and submit the required paperwork.  
If you are not currently a member of one of the participating federations, you can find a list of the participating federations here. You will need to work with one of these federations to become a member and be eligible to participate in the campaign.  Each federation has their own membership criteria and deadlines for accepting new members. It may be too late for the 2019 campaign, but it is not too late to begin the process for becoming eligible for the 2020 campaign.  
2020 Application materials will be available after November 1, 2019.
