Greetings and welcome to the 2017 Alaska Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). This year I have the honor and privilege of serving as Co-Chair with Brian Cahill of the Transportation Security Administration. I strongly believe in advocating community support through the CFC and look forward to providing solid cooperative leadership.
Thank you for volunteering your support of this year’s very important campaign. We, as a Federal collective, are experiencing a transition; change is on the horizon. This year, our goal is to encourage all employees to find inspiration through community support. We want to emphasize online giving through payroll deductions. We need your help advocating, encouraging, and assisting your local employees in pledging their support to their favorite charities. We want them to know and understand the many positive reasons for contributing to the CFC. Training will be provided and local resources are available.
If you are an employee considering pledging your support, you have my appreciation. There are thousands of charities represented every year in the campaign. Each of these charities provides a needed service, has been vetted, and is worthy of your sponsorship. I urge you to find one that touches your heart and recognize the significance your contribution can make to those served. Contributions can be made through payroll deduction or a one-time credit card payment.
There are many reasons to give, but the most important one is the support to the community. We, as Federal employees, are public servants. The CFC gives us an opportunity to validate that service. I hope that you will consider pledging your support and advocating for the CFC within your local workplace. For more information, please contact your local Agency Coordinator or Keyworker. I look forward to another successful campaign and am grateful for the opportunity to serve.
