CFC Campaign Underway; Now Accepting Donations!
The 2014 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) for the Greater New Orleans Area, will run from September 1st –December 15th. It began with a rousing Coordinator Training/Kickoff which occurred on Wednesday, September 10th. There were a total of 116 participants present, including coordinators, speakers, Loaned Executive’s, CFC staff and non-profit agencies! CFC Coordinators are the point of contact for each federal agency. They were trained on how to help people donate to CFC. Speakers included the CFC Campaign Cabinet members or their representatives including: the Chair, the Military Chair, the Civilian Chair and the Postal Chair. CFC Chair Brian Farley encouraged federal employees to “Be a part of the largest and most successful workplace philanthropic fund raiser in the world. Together we can make a difference in thousands of lives. You make it possible!”.
The Military Chair for the campaign is Lieutenant General Richard P. Mills who is the Commanding General Marine Forces Reserve and Marine Forces North. He was represented at the training by Col. Steven Godinho, Commanding Officer, Marine Forces Reserve who spoke about the importance of the CFC.
Created by President Kennedy in 1961, the CFC is the annual fund-raising drive conducted for all military, federal civilian, and postal employees in their workplace each fall. Each year, military personnel and federal employees raise millions of dollars through the CFC that benefits thousands of non-profit charities. The majority of the money raised in the this region goes to local charities to support the local community. Last year the campaign raised just under $1 million dollars and this year the goal is to reach one million.
The benefits of donating through MyPay are: increased donor confidentiality, reduced administrative workload, and reduced possibility of administrative errors associated with paper pledge form processing. Active duty Army, Navy, and Air Force Personnel donors must input their 4-digit Campaign Code (0372) for the CFC for Greater New Orleans. All other donors’ campaign information will be automatically populated.
