Richard Swain, 2016 Campaign Chair

Friends of the Combined Federal Campaign,Richard Swain

By investing in our community, we create and benefit from a more robust environment in which to live, work and play. We promote generosity in our children, and we enjoy tax deductions. By researching charities of interest, we also stay informed about social issues that impact our neighborhood, our city, our country and the world at large. Besides—studies show that giving helps make us feel good!

Of course, the local, national and international charities listed herein reap immeasurable benefits as well: your contribution is invested in strengthening vital programs and services for wounded warriors and veterans, children, and our animal friends. Our dollars will pay for building maintenance, address safety concerns, and hire staffers who act as the boots on the ground, rolling up their sleeves to interact directly with the homeless, the hungry and those with disabilities.

Your donation of any size can make an impressive difference:

Just $52 a year (or $1 a week) will provide...

  • A paralyzed veteran’s family of 4 with a meal for the holidays
  • Three nights of emergency shelter for a homeless family
  • Approximately 100 pounds of pet food to be delivered after a natural or man-made disaster
  • Resources to eliminate harmful pesticides from community environments

The mission of CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost efficient and effective in providing the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. Globally our friends, family and colleagues contribute millions of dollars annually through 124 CFCs throughout the country plus CFC Overseas.

As the world’s largest annual federal workplace charitable giving campaign, you can make a difference with the click of a button, and just a few moments of your time. Your electronic pledge — through myPay, Employee Express (EEX) or CFC Nexus — helps to significantly reduce the amount of campaign materials needed and costs associated with processing paper pledge forms. These and other cost-saving initiatives ensure that more money is in the hands of your favorite charities.

I am honored to chair this year’s campaign and invite you to join me in this cause. Again this year, we’ll be sharing stories from folks just like you, and the charities that receive the funds you contribute. If you’d like to see your story on Twitter or Facebook, send it to Your words may well inspire a first-time giver, ultimately benefitting our future…locally and globally.

On behalf of this year’s campaign leadership team, thank you in advance for your support,
