Pima County makes it easy for its employees to support the charitable organizations that have made a difference in their lives and the lives of others in our community.
Your donation to any of more than 200 organizations through the Employee Combined Appeal Program (ECAP) shows how much Pima County employees are “Creating a Brighter Tomorrow” for those in our community.
The 2016-17 ECAP campaign runs from Sept. 15 to Dec. 9. Please be generous. Last year’s campaign raised more than $310,000!
In an attempt to cut down on paper, this year’s ECAP is going green! You can support ECAP and help the environment by making your donation online. We’ll even send you your receipt online. Employees who don’t have access to a computer and can’t give online can obtain a pledge card through their departmental coordinator or solicitor.
Ending Poverty Now
The County and United Way are partnering with other community organizations and businesses to help break the cycle of poverty in our community. The initiative helps ensure people are not just “getting by” through "Getting Ahead" - an intensive 50-hour class designed for people in or near poverty. The class provides a safe learning environment to explore the impact of poverty on themselves, their families, and their communities.
Participants assess their own resources and make plans for their own future. They offer ideas for building a prosperous community and choose a team to help fulfill their dreams.
Getting Ahead is being used by a wide network of the County’s local partner organizations
Ending Poverty Now Partner Agencies
- Catholic Community Services/Pio Decimo
- Community Food Bank
- Tucson Urban League
- St. Vincent de Paul
This year’s Ending Poverty Now funds will be used to support these Getting Ahead partners, expand and strengthen the Getting Ahead network, and provide follow up to graduates as they move ahead.
And by giving to the EPN Fund, you may receive a tax credit from the state of Arizona of up to $800 (for married couples). Contact a qualified tax professional for advice.
