What Charities Can I Support?
2013 Charitable Partners
Nine charitable partners participate in the 2013 campaign. Each partner
is a nonprofit federation that raises funds for a group of its member
agencies. The federations receive and disburse employee gifts to
their member agencies and annually certify them for Emory and other workplace
campaigns. Click on a charity's name to see its profile, including
