Two Ways to Team Up with CCF

April 24, 2021

Want to get a little more involved with CCF? Here are two great, and easy, ways to show your support and stay connected.

Help Us Rename Casual for a Cause
A special perk of being a Carrington Associate is the ongoing Casual for a Cause program. Donating part of your paycheck to CCF each pay period (a minimum $5, or more at your discretion) means you can wear casual clothing, including jeans, to work. The donations go to the CCF General Fund, which then directs grants and gifts to a variety of charitable causes suggested by you throughout the year. It's a great (and easy) way to contribute to CCF.

Now CCF needs your help to rename this great program.

There are new perks being awarded to those participating in the program and to those now joining the program, including being eligible to win a gift card every year, receiving an item of CCF-branded merch each year for supporting the Foundation and preferential consideration for grant requests.

So send in your suggestions using this online form for the name for the new program. We’ll let everyone know what name we pick. In the meantime, here’s how to enroll:

Log in to Ultipro from the button on the top right of the Carrington Compass homepage.

  1. 1. Click on “Menu" on the top left hand side of the page.
  2. 2. Click on “MYSELF" at the top center of the popup menu.
  3. 3. Click on “Life Event" at the bottom right of the popup menu.
  4. 4. Click on “Carrington Charitable Foundation."
  5. 5. Elect how much you'd like to donate from each paycheck ($5 min. donation per pay period). The payroll deduction is automatic, and will begin with your next pay period, but you can start wearing your jeans to work immediately!
