It's true! We have so much love for people who work in the public sector and choose to go even further by donating to StandUp For Kids.
We are honored to be part of the Combined Federal Campaign, a federal employee and retiree 'workplace giving' program that prioritizes employee choice, convenience through payroll deduction, and accountability in only the most repuptable of charitable causes.
After many years, we continue to be an approved CFC charity. Our participation is managed through America's Charities, which blogged about us recently. We have recognition from several U.S. Presidential administrations. And what's more? We have the highest possible rankings on Guidestar and on Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator says of its four-star rating that our organization “Exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its Cause.”
The Open Season for selecting your CFC charity started October 2, and will run through January 12, 2018. Our CFC charity code is #10949. Check with your federal agency's Human Resources department for information about how to set up regular or one-time giving.
If you have been a previous CFC contributor, known to us or anonymous, we sincerely thank you. We value your belief in our work, and we encourage you to reach out to us - the national office in Atlanta, the board members across the country, or directly to one of the 17 local programs that might be helping homeless youth in a city near you. We welcome you not only as a donor but as a volunteer should you find the time.
If you work for the federal government and have never given through CFC, or never gave directly to us before, why not consider it this year? Find your local campaign and give now. Giving to us means that young people are getting the resources and support to move from surviving to thriving. This is a challenge bigger than any of us, but through individual partnerships across the federal government, we are already making a big impact.
Remember, you can find StandUp For Kids in your CFC booklet under ID # 10949. We look forward to your participation and we are here to answer any questions you might have. Find your local campaign and give now.
