A new video highlights the importance of the Combined Federal Campaign and urges employees to give as generously as they can.
“It has been a challenging year for a lot of organizations, including nonprofits. Fundraisers have been canceled and contributions are down,” Postmaster General Louis DeJoy says in the video.
“Many charities are struggling. The need is great and resources are limited.”
The campaign, also known as the CFC, represents thousands of charities under one umbrella. It began Sept. 1 and continues through Jan. 15.
Last year, USPS employees pledged more than $4 million in cash and nearly 7,000 volunteer hours. The goal this year is $5 million.
Employees can sign up at the givecfc.org website, on the CFC Giving mobile app or with a paper form. Donations can be made as monthly gifts, one-time pledges or via payroll deduction.
In addition to DeJoy, the video features comments from:
• Ivan Butts, president of the National Association of Postal Supervisors;
• Edmund Carley, president of United Postmasters and Managers of America;
• Paul Hogrogian, president of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union;
• Elizabeth Powell, secretary-treasurer of the American Postal Workers Union;
• Brian Renfroe, executive vice president of the National Association of Letter Carriers; and
• Ronnie Stutts, president of the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association.
The CFC is the largest workplace giving campaign in the world. Since 1961, it has raised more than $8.5 billion for its many causes.
