U.S. Army Garrison Hawaii
This year’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is scheduled to kick off in the Pacific, Oct 5.
The CFC is a method for federal employees, military and civilians, to donate to qualifying charities, the ones that matter to them most.
According to its website, CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign. There are almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas. The Combined Federal Campaign is a 59-year federal workplace giving tradition that raised more than $1.5 million and pledged more than 2,813 hours of volunteer service in the Hawaii Pacific Region in 2019.
The funds raised each fall through the campaign help neighbors in need around the corner, across the nation and throughout the world. Through the contributions of civilian and military federal employees, the campaign continues to make a difference by generating monetary donations for the thousands of participating local, national, and international charities.
You can choose a specific charity or contribute to a general fund where your dollars will be distributed amongst all charities. All contributions made through the CFC are tax-deductible.
You can choose to make donations through a payroll deduction or a one-time donation. Payroll deduction pledges or one-time contributions can be made online or by filling out the paper pledge form.
The preferred online payroll deduction method is through myPay. There is a minimum donation of $1 per pay period for payroll deductions. In addition to pledging money, federal employees can pledge volunteer service hours to participating nonprofit organizations.
Garrison key workers, assigned by unit leadership, will be embedded as a point of contact for those interested in donating and to answer questions about CFC.
“This year, we have been impacted by a number of tragedies that make the needs seem to be more pronounced, especially with COVID-19. The campaign is important because the funds raised benefit veteran services, food insecurity and the well-being of our military members and their families in need,” said Nelson Martinez, U S. Army Garrison Hawaii CFC Agency Project Officer.
Unit project officers and key workers, which are assigned by unit leadership, will be embedded as points of contact for those interested in donating and to answer questions about the CFC.
Again, service members, their families, federal employees and retirees can donate by payroll deduction, credit card, check and/or volunteer hours.
If you would like to contribute or have questions, see your unit CFC coordinator or contact the Garrison Agency CFC Project Officer at 580-458-1001.
