Your chance to support charities through workplace giving

State and federal employees will have an opportunity this fall to participate in charitable giving through a payroll deduction selection. Financial gifts can be made to hundreds of worthwhile organizations in your community and across the state.

The Public Interest Fund of Illinois is a federation of forty-two member agencies. PIFI members work on issues including affordable healthcare, protection of the environment, AIDS awareness, consumer rights, combating homelessness and access to justice. You can make a difference. By supporting the Public Interest Fund of Illinois with a payroll deduction at your workplace, you can select from among the many organizations that are fighting for these issues you care about. It's a simple and affordable way to help make a world of change in your own backyard. You can also donate to agencies and causes of your choosing.
