Department employees meet annual giving goal.

In a difficult economic climate, Department employees worldwide demonstrated their generosity by responding to the need for charitable giving through the 2011 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), ensuring that the Department reached its CFC goal of raising more than $2.2 million to support the more than 4,000 charities in the CFC catalog.


Meeting or exceeding their goals were the bureaus of Information Resource Management; African Affairs; Consular Affairs; Diplomatic Security; International Information Programs; Educational and Cultural Affairs; Human Resources; Democracy, Human Rights and Labor; Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs; Economic, Energy and Business Affairs; Congressional Affairs; Public Affairs; and Western Hemisphere Affairs and the Foreign Service Institute and Office to Monitor and Combat Traffcking in Persons.

Several fund raisers held during the CFC drive highlighted their sponsoring bureaus' creativity and light-hearted approach to giving. They included a fun run/walk, cupcake taste-off, Halloween costume contest, used book and CD sale, video game tournament and the CFC circus hosted by the Foreign Service Institute.

Office of Employee Relations Work Life Division Chief Judy Ikels said the campaign was a team effort and thanked its donors, organizers, coordinators and key workers. She urged those with ideas about how to make the 2012 campaign an even greater success to contact her or Shelly Kornegay, CFC coordinator in the Work Life Division.
