COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN – for those who like connecting strangers to the cause!
CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign. Every year, the CFC season enables charities to present their work and impact to federal employees. There are hundreds of campaigns spread out throughout the US. Each campaign can have between 1 to 15 events during the season, which lasts from September 1st to December 15th. This makes a lot of ground and dates to cover which is why we need YOUR help in order for Crisis Aid to be present at as many events as possible. The more present we are, the more visible we are. And the more visible we are, the more financial pledges we can secure which in turns enables us to help more people in need. You role would be to introduce Crisis Aid to people attending the event(s).
