CFC comes to an end, contributions still accepted

The Fort Gordon Combined Federal Campaign comes to an end today, but contributions will still be accepted through Jan. 15, 2014, which is the CFC deadline for the Central Savannah River Area.

“It will make a big difference in people’s lives,” said Pat Camacho, Fort Gordon CFC project officer.

Personnel who have not made a contribution can still do so. The 2013 CFC will be remembered as the campaign where nothing stood in front of federal employees giving back to the community, reaching out to help the charities of choice while dealing with furloughs, sequestration, and other burdens, according to Camacho.

As of Nov. 22, $233,531 has been contributed to the Fort Gordon CFC. The CFC is one of the largest and most successful annual charities held in the federal workplace. There are more than 4,000 organizations to donate to through the CFC, which all have been audited and accountable for the donations they receive annually.

Donations can be made through a payroll allotment; or a one-time contribution made in cash or a check through one’s unit CFC project workers. Online giving is also available by going to www.cfcnexus.org/_ csra/.

“For those who have contributed, thank you for your support,” said Camacho.

The stated mission of the CFC is to support and to promote philanthropy through a voluntary program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
