Welcome to the Central Virginia Area Combined Federal Campaign
A message from our Chair…
To all Central Virginia federal and military personnel:
I am truly honored to serve as the Campaign Chair of the 2013 Central Virginia Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Our generosity to this tremendous effort continues to provide the opportunity for positive change in the lives of thousands of people throughout our region. Last year federal personnel pledged $1,202,530 to the CFC of Central Virginia. Of that total, over $326,000 was donated to our local area charities, making a direct positive impact on our own communities..
This is OUR campaign and WE have the opportunity to meet the challenges that many in our region are facing. Many of us now in federal service and our families and friends have been personally affected by continuing economic hardships and budget cuts. Yet the demand for services from the charities that serve our community is greater than ever. We recognize that we are fortunate to be employed and can share some of our good fortune with others through CFC giving. We are able to support foundations for family housing, child care, medical research, animal protection, senior support, the environment, and many more. Many in our communities count on them and they’re counting on us.
There are hundreds of organizations to choose from and it’s easy to get involved. A gift through payroll deduction is spread over 12 months and the payroll withholdings don’t begin until January, 2014. Even a small deduction each pay period adds up to a sizable annual gift. Of course, cash and check contributions are also accepted but the payroll method makes it easy and efficient. For those who prefer to donate online, NEXUS is the new online pledge system which can be accessed through this website.
The Combined Federal Campaign is completely voluntary but I hope you will consider how you can help these hard-working nonprofit organizations assist thousands of individuals and families. Our theme this year is “We’re All in This Together – Each One, Reach One”. I invite each of you to join me and hundreds of your colleagues in showing our commitment to caring in Central Virginia and beyond by participating in the 2013 Campaign.
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
