Our Story of Giving

The Denver Employees' Combined Campaign (DECC) began in 1988, when Denver Mayor Federico Peña signed an executive order, to provide City employees with a “responsive and convenient system of charitable giving through payroll deductions.” Now in its third decade, the DECC has been a continual source of sustainable funding for local nonprofits, with city employees investing over $12 million in their communities. 

Today, the DECC strives to promote and support philanthropy by providing a cost-effective and employee-focused way for city employees to donate to nonprofits providing support in health and human services, education, social change, arts, environment conservation, and animal welfare. Employees are able to designate their donations to one or more nonprofits through payroll deduction, cash, check, or credit card. All donations are voluntary and tax-deductible.  

The DECC aims to bring together employees through events and volunteer opportunities to support their neighbors and create an everlasting legacy in Denver.


Mayor Hancock and the DECC Committee have designated Community Shares of Colorado for management of the DECC.  If you have any comments or questions, please contact or 303-861-7507.
