SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --

The Combined Federal Campaign will kick off fund-raising efforts at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Nov. 1.

According to the CFC website, “the CFC is one of the largest and most successful annual workplace campaigns, raising millions of dollars each year. The CFC is the only authorized charitable solicitation of employees in the federal workplace.”

Barbara Barfield, Mountain States CFC zone manager, said the program allows donors to select the charity of their choice and is open to all federal employees.  

“CFC charities are encompassed of non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world,” she said. “Military personnel, federal employees and postal workers can give to local, national and international charities.”The CFC selected the slogan, Show some love, to promote this year’s campaign, which culminates Jan. 12.

Schriever Airmen who want to show some love can donate to a charity of their choice by going to the campaign’s website and clicking on donate (once the campaign kicks off).

“In addition to pledging monetary support, you can now pledge volunteer hours to charities as well,” Barfield said.  

According to a CFC memorandum, federal employees have pledged more than 24,000 hours (valued at more than $5 million) to their favorite causes.

Additionally, during last year’s CFC campaign, federal employees voluntarily participating in the CFC contributed more than $93 million to thousands of local, national and international causes in both funds and volunteer time.”

Airmen who want help with donations should contact CFC key workers or points of contact within their units.

Master Sgt. Nicholas Tessmer, 50th Security Forces logistics superintendent and wing CFC lead, said the campaign’s success depends on Airmen and unit support.

“This is going to be a big team effort,” he said. “The unit’s involvement is going to be key to campaign success and we hope for a great turnout.”

A list of unit key workers will be announced soon.

A call for Airmen to volunteer as key workers will be made by appointed CFC leadership at a later date. Trained volunteers will help Airmen interested in donating time or funds.

All donations made to the charities are tax deductible.
