Local government and school employees make a difference through giving
Local government and school employees in the City of Fredericksburg and counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania, and Stafford have an opportunity to support local charitable organizations through the Local Government Campaign (LGC). LGC offers convenient payroll deductions.
Overseeing the Campaign: Local Government Committee
The campaign is overseen by a committee of representatives made up of employees from the various government and school districts. The committee:
- Established the guidelines for the campaign.
- Selected Rappahannock United Way as Fiscal Agent/Campaign Consultant to serve as the administrator for the campaign.
- Evaluated the agencies that apply for inclusion in the campaign.
The interests of local government and school employees were given top priority in each step of the process.
Donating through the Local Government Campaign*
Do you have a favorite charity? You may choose up to four federations or agencies to receive your gift. (Federations are groups of charities that work together.)
On your pledge form there is a section where you can indicate which agencies you would like to support. Each agency listed has a code. Simply fill in your selected agency's code(s) on the form - only those agencies will be designated to receive your contribution.
If you designate to a federation, your contribution will go to support the entire group of agencies that is represented by that federation.
*Please note: Due to the cost of processing donations, there is a minimum designation of $50 per agency per year.
Write-in designations are not available. Local health and human services nonprofit must apply annually and be accepted to the campaign in order to received designations.
If you would like to learn more about the Local Government Campaign, participating charitable agencies, or how you can get more involved in your community, please contact Grace Draper.
Rappahannock United Way's Local Government code is 6400.
