One $1 Million Dollar CFC Campaign Exceeds Goal by 10% – So Far
One $1 million dollar CFC campaign beats deadline, exceeds goal by 10%, final total expected to be even higher.
Thanks to all the generous CFC donors, and the volunteers including campaign managers, committee chairs and the keyworkers who are responsible for the success of the CFC each year.
If you have read my articles, or heard me speak, you know that I believe that the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) can be an important revenue generator for many non-profits. In these tough economic times, it’s nice to have that position backed up with results like these:

Team Lackland exceeds CFC goal

11/13/2009 – LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Team Lackland has shown its generosity once again by exceeding its goal of $1.5 million in donations for the annual Combined Federal Campaign.
Through Nov. 7, reports show more than $1.65 million has been donated. That number is expected to grow since donations can be accepted through Dec. 15.
The fundraising officially kicked off Sept. 2 and ended Oct. 28 for permanent party. The campaign was extended two weeks from its original end date of Oct. 14 because materials from the national office were delayed at the beginning of the campaign.
“It’s been a Team Lackland effort, and while some haven’t met their goals, others have exceeded theirs, so we’ve balanced each other out,” said Lt. Col. Enrique Gwin, Team Lackland project officer for the campaign.
Base agencies participating in the fundraising, open to all federal employees, are the 37th Training Wing, 59th Medical Wing, Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency, 688th IOW, 677th Network Warfare Wing, Crypto-logic Systems Group, Texas Cryptologic Center, Joint Information Operations, Warfare Center, 149th Fighter Wing and 433rd Airlift Wing.
Col. Gwin said he is proud of the way Team Lackland has donated to the CFC, which supports 2,600 local and international charities.
“There was never a doubt,” he said. “I think when it’s all finished, we will far exceed our goal.
“At this time, generally speaking, we are more fortunate than some people in our society; we know we have a job tomorrow,” he said.
“If we can help them stay on their feet long enough for the economy to get going again, we’re all going to benefit, she said.”
