DoD’s CFC Campaign Raises $21M for Charities

PentagonMembers of the Defense Department and military services raised $21 million in 2013 thousands of charities that the agency supports, the American Forces Press Service reported Thursday.

Terri Moon Cronk writes the money will be used to fund 4,400 institutions recognized by the Combined Federal Campaign program.

Christine Fox, acting deputy secretary and CFC vice chair, announced the figure last week and handed out CFC awards to key contributors, including five combatant commands from overseas.

“CFC is all about giving to people who need help, whether it’s through research organizations to try to cure diseases or prevent them or it’s giving to help individuals struggling in any number of ways,” Fox said at the ceremony.
