Employee Giving Campaign

Chip in and Help

The Joliet Junior College Employee Giving Campaign directly supports JJC students! The most exciting part about employee giving is that you can give to the fund of your choice. You can either make a one-time gift or ongoing through payroll deduction. Your gift* helps students succeed and includes additional rewards just for you. Watch the video from the '17 campaign (stay tuned).


In 2017, JJC employees raised nearly $108,000 thanks to efforts put forth by the Employee Giving Campaign – surpassing last year’s amount by $10,000. A total of 167 employees gave $150 or more (President’s Level) and 15 employees gave for the first time.

The Employee Giving Campaign is celebrated every April with the purpose of encouraging faculty and staff to support JJC and make an immediate impact on students. Employees may make a one-time or ongoing contribution to the Foundation through a payroll deduction. Plus, employees can give to the fund of their choice, whether it supports a specific scholarship, department or other area of the college. “I am proud to work alongside so many generous employees,” said Michelle Lyman, Employee Giving Campaign committee member. “Serving on this committee has been a great opportunity to make a tangible difference in our student’s lives.”

Although the campaign is over, employees can still give year-round. Those who contribute at the President’s Level can enter the Employee Giving Campaign balloon party drawing each April. All donations are tax deductible.
