Combined Federal Campaign

Anne

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.

Meg, what a great idea! I have to admit, I've thought the same thing-- and I did send the application procedure to Anne a while back and I think she's working on it! I hope we're on there for next year. Thanks for the reminder!

I'm the CFC keyperson for my command and I pitched this to Eleni a couple of weeks ago. I believe they are working on it for the 2005 Campaign. I hope to see PF in the booklet next year!!!!

Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, we are all over it for 2005. The deadlines are way out ahead so even though we wanted to get involved months ago for 2004, it was already too late. Once we get registered, we'll need EVERY federal worker's help to get the word out amongst your colleagues to check off the PF box :-)

That really is a great idea. I work as a civilian for the US Coast Guard and we are in the midst of raising money for CFC. Honestly, I don't give now, but sure would if our organization was on the list. I would be happy to get the word out as well. Keep us posted.
