Employers benefit because workplace giving:
Employee benefits include:
Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) runs each year from September 1 through December 15 and provides federal employees a vehicle to consolidate their support for charities across the country.
Designate CFC # 10809 on your donation form or look for us in the Health First - America's Charities Federation Section of your CFC Catalog of Caring as: Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
Private Sector and Corporate Campaigns
Many companies, particularly large corporations, are now conducting their own employee giving campaigns. To encourage giving, companies will often match an employee gift, making the total double or even triple the contribution.
Employees should check with the company’s human resources department to make sure that the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is included. If not, contact the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids for assistance. If a company partners with America's Charities for its workplace giving campaign, look for our listing under the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
State and Local Campaigns
Government employees in most states can select the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids as a recipient of workplace campaign pledges and gifts. To designate the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, find the Health First - America's Charities Federation Section in your campaign directory and designate the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
If you work for a company that offers a corporate matching gift program, your contribution to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids could qualify for a match by your employer.
To see if your company has a matching gift policy, check with your human resources department or administrative office. While every employer has different policies, they will often have you complete a form to send with your donation to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. We will then verify your donation and return the form to your employer so they can then issue a matching gift directly to us.
