Ease of Choice
If you are a federal employee, you have the opportunity to make your part in the Combined Federal Campaign even more meaningful. By joining with your fellow employees to support the Gainesville Fisher House Foundation, you are supporting the construction of the North Florida/South Georgia Fisher House, a "home away from home" for veterans, military and their families.
Giving at Work and Encouraging Others
Giving at work is effective and important. You are making this decision at the workplace amongst your peers. What better way to build synergy for a cause?
Federal employees created the original Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) campaign. Today, by a Presidential Executive Order signed by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, it continues to be the largest and most successful workplace fundraising model in the world.
The CFC's mission is to promote and support charitable giving through a program that allows all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. Established in 1961, the CFC is the largest workplace charity campaign in the United States and the only campaign authorized to solicit and collect contributions from federal employees in the workplace on behalf of charitable organizations.
The drive runs from September 1 through December 15 of each year. Pledges made by civilian, postal, and military donors during the campaign season support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. These contributions can be made either by cash or check, or can be automatically deducted from the employee's paychecks.
Convenient and Certain
Together, the force of you and your fellow employees can impact the lives and well being of others during one of the most critical times in their lives. A serious illness, a problematic birth or other therapeutic needs, are all easier to handle with the care and attention of a loved one nearby and the ability to stay close to the hospital. The reputation of the Fisher Houses and the work they do assures you that your contribution is being put to good use.
