Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 21, 2013
Stars and Stripes has published its annual Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Guide, a supplement designed to help military personnel, DoD civilian and other Federal employees choose where to send their charitable contributions each year.
The CFC Guide provides a listing of charitable organizations that participate in the Combined Federal Campaign, along with stories and detailed information about the services that many of the charities provide. The Combined Federal Campaign is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign. Running from September 1 until December 15, the CFC raises millions of dollars every year to benefit eligible organizations that provide health and human services assistance throughout the world.
Federal employees and military members refer to the Stars and Stripes CFC Guide as they make their annual decisions to pledge a portion of their income to one or more organization.
"Our military community values the information provided to them through the Stars and Stripes Combined Federal Campaign Guide," says Michael Davidson, Director of Revenue Development. "The guide allows servicemembers and other Federal employees not only to identify the participating charities, but also to understand the services they provide and have a more complete picture of the organizations, so that they may make an informed decision as to where their contributions will go. Through a multi-platform approach, the CFC Guide allows charitable organizations the opportunity to reach this unique and desirable global audience through both print distribution, as well as online at http://www.stripes.com."
Stars and Stripes began distribution of the CFC Guide on Oct. 17, 2013 in all daily newspaper editions overseas. The guide will also be included with base newspapers on selected military installations in the United States, as well as at AAFES centers and Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) distribution sites in the National Capital Region. Approximately 300,000 CFC Guides will be distributed stateside.
In addition to the print supplement, the Stars and Stripes CFC Guide can be found online at Stripes.com.
