Payroll deduction is giving made easy.

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.

Who oversees the Local Government Campaign?

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.

Designated Gifts in 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 Donations

Write-in designations are not available. Please encourage your favorite health and human services nonprofit to apply to the campaign. Agencies must apply for inclusion in the LGC.
