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

Please help us generate more resources for research.
Giving Tuesday was a great start on our year end goal. So far we have raised over $46,000. Our anonymous donor will match every donation dollar for dollar up to $175,000 until January 15, 2017. That's right, every donation you make will be doubled so you will receive twice as much satisfaction and double the number of people you will help with your wonderful and most appreciated generosity. This is 40% more than was matched last year so we are asking everyone to stretch your giving as well to make sure we use every nickel of this match. We can do it!
