I am happy to announce that the National Alliance to End Homelessness is participating in this year’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). The Alliance is part of the Human Care Charities Federation and our pledge number is 10022.
The CFC, a workplace giving program for federal employees, is one the largest and most successful campaigns of its kind. The mission of the CFC is “to promote and support 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.”
If you are a federal employee, you can contribute to the Alliance through this worthwhile program. Look for our listing under, “Homelessness, National Alliance to End,” #10022 in your CFC pledge book and on your local campaign website. Pledges can be made now through December 15, 2010. If you work in Washington, DC you can give online through the National Capital Area’s Campaign.
As a supporter, you can be assured that your contribution goes directly to support our programs: preventing and ending homelessness in this country. In 2009, 93.5 percent of funds raised went to research, education and capacity building programs while only 6.5 percent went to administration and fundraising.
If you’re not a government employee but are feeling charitable as the holiday season approaches, please visit the Alliance website to donate online.
Thanks so much for your support!
