NIH Exceeds CFC Goal
NIH has once again surpassed its goal in the annual Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).
“I am proud to announce that we exceeded our goal by raising more than $1 million for charities,” said Dr. Lawrence Tabak, who is performing the duties of NIH director, in a Dec. 19 all-staff email. “Your contributions will benefit thousands of CFC charities to support people and causes in great need.”
Every year, NIH is asked to meet a specific dollar goal in raising funds for the CFC, the annual workplace fundraising drive among federal employees that serves more than 5,000 charities. For the past 17 campaigns, employees raised more than $2 million, even though the target was $1 million. Tabak believes NIH can accomplish the feat once again.
“I want to extend my sincere thanks to the NIH CFC Co-Chair and NIMHD Director Dr. Eliseo J. Pérez-Stable for his leadership in this effort,” Tabak said. “We could not have achieved our goal without the dedication of all our key workers, coordinators, and campaign managers who devoted their time, creativity, and resourcefulness to making this year’s campaign a success.”
The CFC deadline is Jan. 14. Those who have not made a pledge can visit the NIH CFC website (https://cfc.nih.gov/) and search through a list of charities participating in this year’s campaign.
