Support the NVFC through the Combined Federal Campaign and United Way
September 16, 2013
Does your employer participate in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) or United Way? If so, consider supporting the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) with your 2013 campaign contribution. By designating CFC #11395 or United Way #9657, you will be helping the NVFC provide needed advocacy, programs, and resources to help the volunteer fire service thrive.
The CFC season runs through December 15, and federal employees can use this opportunity to designate a contribution to the NVFC by indicating CFC identification # 11395 when making your pledge. Managed by the Office of CFC Operations in the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace giving campaign. Its mission is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. During campaign season, federal civilian, postal, and military donors can make pledges to eligible nonprofit organizations.
Non-federal employees can support the NVFC through the United Way. Designate #9657 on the donation form. The NVFC is listed in the brochure for the United Way of the National Capital Area, but any participant in a United Way campaign nationwide can designate the NVFC in their giving.
Money donated to the NVFC helps support the NVFC's legislative initiatives, the Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program, Fire Corps, the National Junior Firefighter Program, and other important initiatives and projects that benefit the fire and emergency medical services.
