EarthShare To Manage 2013 CFCNCA
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 11, 2013) – Dr. Brandon Haller, chairperson of the Local Federal Coordinating Committee that oversees the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA), announced that EarthShare will administer the 2013 campaign activities. The CFCNCA is the largest CFC in the country and one of the largest workplace giving campaigns in the world.
“We are delighted to be working with EarthShare on next year’s campaign," said Dr. Haller. “EarthShare CEO Kal Stein was a member of the CFC-50 Commission that made recommendations regarding the future of the Combined Federal Campaign. We are looking forward to working with Mr. Stein and his team to enhance our outreach efforts to federal employees and to build upon the strong foundation we have in the CFCNA.”
“We’re honored to be selected for this important responsibility,” said Stein. “Federal employees who make charitable contributions through the CFC are committed to making a real difference in their community and the country. We will support them by making CFCNCA operations as efficient as possible, while also inspiring a new generation of donors.”
Local CFCs across the country operate under regulations and guidance administered by the Office of Personnel Management. A board of federal employees known as the Local Federal Coordinating Committee directs each local CFC effort. Each year, a participating CFC charity is selected to act as Principal Combined Fund Organization, which provides management support services. EarthShare was selected to serve in this role for the 2013 campaign.
For 25 years, EarthShare has represented environmental charities in the CFC and managed workplace giving programs.
“We look forward to helping the CFC leaders in the National Capital Area to connect federal employees with the charities they support so generously,” added Stein. “We’re very excited by the opportunity to serve, and are eager to start.”
