MEMORANDUM FOR: All FEMA National Capital Region Employees
FROM: W. Craig Fugate /s/
SUBJECT: 2013 Combined Federal Campaign
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is an annual fundraising drive that serves as a method for government employees to support over 4,400 approved local, national, and international charities. Last year, the federal government raised over $62 million dollars and since its inception, the CFC has raised over $7 billion. This extraordinary display of generosity and compassion has helped hungry families obtain food, funded research for devastating diseases, supported returning veterans, provided disaster relief, and served countless other life-changing needs.
This year’s campaign theme is “I Make It Possible.” The current budgeting environment impacts our employees and citizens alike, making it more difficult yet more important than ever to support a favorite charity. This year we are aiming for 100% employee contact by the volunteer keyworkers in lieu of setting a fundraising goal. Many FEMA employees have volunteered to facilitate the campaign. These “keyworkers” are available throughout the agency to assist you in the donation process. Please reference the attached document to identify your office’s keyworkers. I extend my thanks and gratitude to the keyworkers for undertaking this important work as we seek to assist a variety of charities.
Giving is easy, convenient, and quick. You can browse the Catalog of Caring or search for charities at www.cfcnca.org and donate by cash, check, credit/debit card, or payroll deduction (the best way to give). You can also contribute to the CFC using a paper pledge form or online at www.cfcnca.org.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to another successful campaign.
