Federal Employees are Willing to Support Spastic Paraplegia Foundation

The Combined Federal Campaign or CFC is a fundraising campaign the Federal Government offers its employees to participate with each year. It is like a United Way campaign where employees pick which non-profits they would like to support. The CFC starts the end of August and usually runs through December.

Each year Millions of dollars are raised through the CFC campaign. The bad news is that the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation doesn’t get much of the money raised.

Your help is needed to ask Federal employees you know to pick the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation to contribute to. The best way to get a commitment is to ask personally. If that is too uncomfortable, feel free to send a letter or email. The Spastic Paraplegia Foundation CFC number is 12554. Federal employees will need to know that so they can designate the SPF.

The following are examples of Federal employees: law enforcement, mail personnel, VA or Veteran’s Administration employees, Medicare, Medicaid, military and many types of governmental jobs. If donors want to know more, please have them log on to

Many federal locations have CFC Fairs during the Fall. They allow representatives from organizations to visit with employees and provide information. If you hear about one in your area and would like to help inform federal employees about the SPF, please let me know. I can get you the materials you will need. All you will need to do is provide the time and a friendly attitude.

If you have any questions, suggestions or would like to help with a CFC fair, please contact
