Larger departments face unique challenges in bringing together all their employees around workplace giving. How do you reach every single employee?  How do you ensure the message and enthusiasm resonates?  This is at least the 5th year DES has excelled in answering those questions to outstanding result. Congratulations on having the highest participation and most new connections of our 601+ employee departments!Additionally, they have visible leadership that supports the program in a big way. Thank you Caroline and DES!

For two years in a row the Department of Natural Resources and Parks has built up momentum and rallied their employees –no matter where they are. They did not let far-flung geography deter them from bringing people together. We are so lucky to have such amazing commitment from this department. Way to go, DNRP!!! You raised the more dollars of any departments with 601+ employees.


Most Improved: Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention (DAJD)
