Combined Federal Campaign
New Jersey employees participate in the Northern New Jersey Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). CFC is an easy way to participate in your favorite charitable cause, because your donation is deducted from your check each pay period. CFC pledges are made one year at a time; employees must renew their participation each year to continue as a CFC contributor. And if you make a pledge and find that you can't continue, you can change your payroll deduction anytime.
Contact NJ CFC coordinator Fred Kelly for more information.
New Jersey NRCS Receives CFC Award
Because of the generosity of our people, New Jersey NRCS annually receives award recognition by the North Jersey CFC Organization. In 2011, we received both the Platinum Award and the Eagle Award. These signify outstanding percent participation of employees in the Combined Federal Campaign and outstanding average individual donation level.
The mission of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is cost-efficient and effective in providing federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
The CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity effort, with more than 200 individual campaigns throughout the country and internationally to help raise millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.
New Jersey NRCS Employees Proudly Participate in the CFC
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the Federal employee's best opportunity to give charitable contributions to worthwhile organizations. The opportunities to give are nearly limitless, from helping feed children anywhere in the world, to providing assistance pets for disabled, to preserving open space, to fighting diseases. Any cause that matters to you, it's part of the CFC!
It's amazing how much good can be done, how many less-fortunate people can be helped, with just nominal contributions.
Just 10 dollars per pay period (a dollar a day) can buy 5 dozen chicks for egg production in the Caribbean, or provide 5 wigs for children undergoing chemotherapy.
Just 20 dollars per pay period can teach 20 new parents about early childhood development or provide fishing nets and juvenile fish to start a fish farming operation in the Bolivian Andes
Just 25 dollars a pay period can give over 260 children nutritious food assistance for a month or supply 125 warm blankets for a refugee family somewhere in the world.
Part of the beauty of the CFC is the payroll deduction feature. You designate an amount per pay period be deducted; you don't even have to cut a check for a lump sum.
Every office will receive a copy of the current campaign brochure which lists all of the eligible organizations to share. Pledge forms will be sent out as well. Completed pledge forms are returned to Fred Kelly in the Somerset State office during the campaign, usually in November every year.
