There Are Lots of Ways to Support CCF

July 27, 2021

If you want to support the good CCF does for Veterans and deserving nonprofits, there are lots of way to do it. Here are just a few: 

Casual for a Cause Provides Critical Support to CCF
For years, Associates have supported the Carrington Charitable Foundation through the Casual for a Cause program, which allowed Associates to wear jeans every day to work in exchange for donating at least $5 a paycheck to CCF. Although many Associates are now working from home, that support is needed more than ever before. The Casual for a Cause payroll deduction program makes a great impact on the Foundation’s giving opportunities throughout the year, and your donations really make a difference in our communities. For example, money raised from this program in 2020 allowed CCF to make Animal Awareness Grants, as well as a variety of other grants requested by Associates to support their local communities. 

Enroll now in Casual for a Cause! When you enroll in the program, you’ll know you’re helping charities that are important to Carrington Associates. Follow these easy instructions to making your workday just a little more casual:

  1. 1. Log in to UKG from the UKG button in the right-side navigation buttons on the Carrington Compass homepage.
  2. 2. Click on “Menu” on the top left hand side of the page.
  3. 3. Click on “Life Event.”
  4. 4. Click on “Carrington Charitable Foundation.”
  5. 5. Elect how much you would like to donate from each paycheck ($5 minimum donation per pay period). This payroll deduction is automatic, and will begin with your next pay period. If and when you return to an office location, you can wear jeans every day. And for everyone working from home, know that by contributing to Casual for a Cause you are making an important difference in the amount of good CCF can do.
