CDPHP Employees Raise Record $60,000 For Local Charities



CDPHP is thrilled to announce the results of a year-long, employee-driven fundraising campaign that netted nearly $60,000 for two local charities. The efforts, all part of the CDPHP Charity of Choice campaign, gives employees the opportunity to provide both financial and hands-on support to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

This year, CDPHP employees selected two local organization – The Bus Stop Club and Family Promise of the Capital Region – to serve as the 2017 Charities of Choice. Throughout the year, employees organized dozens of fundraisers and exceeded their $50,000 fundraising goal.
