Have you considered having PF listed as one of the charities eligible in the Combined Federal Campaign? The campaign is set up so that federal employees and members of the military can designate a certain $ or % of their salary be sent to a charitable organization of their choice each pay period. The campaign begins in October and goes through November. The deductions begin in the beginning of the year. Obviously it is too late for this year, but perhaps you can do it for next year. Also, at the beginning of the campaign, most offices have a speaker come and talk about their organization in the hopes of getting more people aware of their group and whatever their cause is. The FDIC has an office in Seattle and I could set up having you (or someone else) come and talk to them. I am sure there are other federal agencies in Seattle also that may be looking for a speaker. Anyway, I thought that this may be a good way for PF to get known and perhaps get "regular" donations from some individuals.
