Between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., faculty and staff members who donate to the campaign will be eligible to win prizes; winners will be selected randomly from employees who give during each time period.

The Giving Green Campaign combines solicitations for the State Employee Combined Campaign (SECC) and the Arts & Science Council (ASC) and UNC Charlotte Foundation campaigns during one period. Employees can voluntarily participate in the Giving Green Campaign and can donate to any or all the three beneficiaries via one-time donations or payroll deduction throughout the year. More than 950 organizations that provide a variety of services and educational experiences to the greater Charlotte community receive support through the Giving Green Campaign.
