UCCS employees raised more than $18,000 for non-profit organizations in southern Colorado in the annual Colorado Combined Campaign that finished Jan. 7. State agencies raised nearly $950,000 for 600 Colorado nonprofits, with 29 located in the Pikes Peak region.

“Even though we got a late start, we still had a great showing for 2017,” said UCCS chair Shonda Johnson, transfer credit specialist, Degree Audit and Transfer Credit Office. “We had some great support and I’m thankful for everyone’s help this year.”

UCCS employees who donated were entered to win donated prizes for gift cards and a free stay at The Mining Exchange. Johnson said she is already working on prizes for the 2018 campaign.

The Colorado Combined Campaign has raised nearly $34 million since the first campaign in 1987. UCCS gifts have exceeded $60,000 during the last three years.

The 2018 campaign is scheduled to begin in September and run through December. For additional questions or to volunteer, contact Johnson at 255-3225 or sjohns23@uccs.edu.
