As this year’s Combined Federal Campaign chair for Hill Air Force Base, it is my pleasure to provide some information about this year’s campaign.
The CFC mission is to support and to promote philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. The Combined Federal Campaign belongs to you — the federal employee.
It is a partnership between the employee, the federal government and the charitable organizations that benefit all. CFC is a complete donor choice campaign. You direct your support to charities that work on the issues you care deeply about. The CFC has been around more than 45 years and has a proven track record for efficiency.
This year’s 2015 CFC dates for Team Hill will be from Oct. 5 through Nov. 16. Our kickoff event will be on Oct. 1 at The Landing on Hill AFB. The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There will be approximately 50 charities in attendance and the entertainment for this year’s event will be “Charity Popcorn.”
Each charity will have 30-45 seconds to provide a brief “elevator speech or skit” about their mission. Door prizes will be given throughout the event, and lunch is available for purchase through The Landing.
For as little as $1 per pay period, you can make a huge difference and support your charity. The CFC has made it convenient to give online or via paper form. You can donate through payroll deduction, the most convenient way to give (either online or by paper form), or you can donate by credit/debit card, cash or personal check. You can go to www.intermountaincfc.org to browse through the list of charities. Each unit has unit project officers and key workers who will contact employees and assist you with making donations.
This year’s 2015 CFC theme for the Intermountain Region is “You Can Change A Life.”
Let’s pool our dollars together as Team Hill always does, so that we can truly change some lives in our world for those needing our precious donations.
