CFC is the world’s largest annual charitable giving campaign, open to federal, military and postal employees.
HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y. (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 22, 2020
UBCF is pleased to announce their 8th consecutive year participating in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). This fall, the CFC campaign period will run from September 21, 2020, through January 15, 2021 . Established in 1961 under direction of President John F. Kennedy, the CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charitable giving campaign. The CFC invites federal, military and postal employees to donate to their choice of charitable organizations. United Breast Cancer Foundation’s CFC number is 77934.
UBCF, a Guidestar 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency rated nonprofit, is proud to be a CFC approved charity. CFC approved charities are 501(c)(3) organizations and are determined to be eligible through a rigorous application process. Today most charities that participate in the campaign do so as members of National Federations. These Federations, such as Creating Healthier Communities (CHC), have their own standards which their members must meet, resulting in a group of charities donors can support with confidence. UBCF is a proud member of CHC.
CFC donors can directly help further UBCF’s mission, to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. UBCF serves women, men and families nationwide through seven programs as well as our COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Program. Giving $50 per bi-weekly pay period can help a patient struggling to pay her mortgage and afford her treatments. Just $25 per pay period can pay for holistic treatments. A one-time gift of $150 will cover a breast screening for a woman or man in need. Gifts of any size will make a big difference in the lives of those fighting breast cancer.
Kim, a UBCF client diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016, has received several grants and donated products from UBCF. Kim’s son Mark was also awarded a UBCF college scholarship. When asked what a donor’s gift means to her, Kim shared, “Survival. Without the love of the United Breast Cancer Foundation I honestly believe I wouldn’t be in the place where I am today.” She further explained, “The more money that donors donate, the more women facing a breast cancer diagnosis will be able to breath through their treatments.”
Please consider supporting UBCF through the CFC – choose #77934. UBCF is grateful to their donors, without the generous support of CFC contributions, UBCF wouldn’t be able to help so many deserving people, like Kim and Mark. Thank you for your service and your support!
