Be the Face of Giving in 2022
Be the Face of Giving in 2022
The 2022 CFC Giving Season has begun and you can be the face of giving to our Foundation!

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the official workplace giving campaign for federal employees and retirees. Over the years, the Navy Supply Corps Foundation has been the grateful recipient of your kind consideration during the campaign—Federal, postal, military, and retirees contribute to our non-profit organization. The CFC mission is "to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all”.

The benefits of your CFC contributions can be seen in every program we offer the Supply Community—and it’s so easy to participate! The cornerstone of the campaign is the CFC Online Donation System. This year, the mobile giving app will integrate full payroll deduction options. For employees who may not have access to or decide not to use the electronic donation system, a paper pledge form will also be available. As we emerge from the pandemic, we hope all Members will consider this giving option—the largest and most successful annual workplace charity opportunity!

The solicitation period opened September 1, 2022, and runs through January 14, 2023. New employees may make pledges within 30 days of entry on duty, if outside of the campaign solicitation period.

Join the CFC 2022 Giving Campaign! Donate to the Foundation through the CFC ~ the Navy Supply Corps Foundation, Inc. #10281. Don't wait, visit the CFC website to sign up and name the Foundation #10281 as your charity today!

Dear Fellow Supply Corps Officers and Friends,

We hope you and your families are enjoying the fall season. Please take a few minutes to read the September issue of the Foundation's new eNewsletter which includes three important topics related to our Community.

IRA Charitable Rollover

At this time of year you may be thinking for a way to help further our mission. If you are 70½ or older, an IRA charitable rollover is a great way to contribute to our mission and enjoy tax benefits, as well. 
Benefits of an IRA charitable rollover include:
-Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to our organization.
-Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts.
-Help further the work and mission of our organization.

Click here for a free brochure or email with questions regarding an IRA charitable rollover gift--we are happy to assist you.

August is National Make-a-Will Month!

Make-a-Will month is a national movement to create awareness of the importance of having a will and to encourage individuals to create an estate plan to protect their loved ones. Legacy planning can provide security and even advance your passions for your most important causes.

The process of writing your will can be stress-free, and this important task empowers you to best decide how your assets are distributed rather than leaving those decisions to the government. No matter what your estate includes today, everyone needs a plan.
