2015 Combined Federal Campaign is now underway

CFC 2015

The Combined Federal Campaign of the Pikes Peak Region began Oct. 1 and will run through Dec. 15.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The Combined Federal Campaign of the Pikes Peak Region began Oct. 1 and will run through Dec. 15.

The CFC is the only authorized solicitation of employees in the federal government workplace on behalf of charitable organizations. Every year, federal, military and postal employees are encouraged to help raise much-needed dollars through the CFC for qualified non-profit charities. Every charitable organization is screened by the CFC. All money contributed to the CFC is disbursed to the charitable organizations that the donors specify to receive their contributions. Unspecified amounts are distributed equally among the participating charities.

This year's theme is "Be a Change Maker".

The CFC's mission is to support and 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. Started in 1964 by federal employees, the CFC's intent was to bring the diversity of fundraising efforts under one umbrella, creating one campaign per year.

Soon volunteer key workers will be requesting participation in joining the team of donors who are making a difference.

In addition, the committee is hosting a dodgeball tournament and charity fair Nov. 6 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Peterson AFB Fitness Center. There will be a presentation for the winner and a Wacky Uniform Award, as well as the opportunity to visit with over 40+ charities. All teams need at least six players with one female and can have up to four substitutes. Sign-up by e-mailing dawn.baker@us.af.mil
