  • 455th AEW/PA
The Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas began for the 455th AEW today and will run until Nov. 20, with "Give because you care" as this year’s theme.

Created in 1961 to coordinate fundraising efforts of various charitable organizations in the federal government, the CFC-O is the only authorized solicitation of Department of Defense employees stationed overseas on behalf of the more than 2,600 approved charitable organizations.
Not only does the CFC-O support different charities ranging from local community initiatives to large, well-known charities, the program provides the option for individuals to donate to charities and organizations they are interested in or have a passion for.

As one of the most successful charitable workplace giving campaigns in the world, volunteers strive to ensure the donation process is simple and flexible. There are three different ways to donate, make giving to the charity much easier. Participants are able to make recurring monthly payroll donations through myPay, a one-time or monthly recurring donation through the campaign's eGiving program, or use a triplicate pledge card, which will be distributed during the campaign and submitted to the unit CFC-O representatives.
Key personnel intend to make face-to-face connections during the two-month initiative, but contributions will continue to be accepted throughout the year.
