    HONOLULU — The Hawaii-Pacific Area Combined Federal Campaign kickoff event at the Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Federal Building was hosted by the Coast Guard, Monday.

    Rear Adm. Vincent Atkins, the Coast Guard 14th District commander, presided over the event.

    The Hawaii-Pacific Area campaign is one of the nation's largest and most successful campaigns. Only three locations in 2014 raised more money than the 90,000 Federal employees here in Hawaii-Pacific region who contributed over $4.5 million to the campaign.

    Of the $4.5 million contributed by federal employees, $1.8 million directly supported local charities throughout communities in the Hawaii-Pacific area.

    "Giving together, making a difference is our 2015 campaign slogan," said Lt. Cmdr. Nicolas Jarboe, Hawaii Pacific-Area CFC project officer. "The federal workforce of over 90,000 employees in the region have the ability to positively impact the lives of those around us. We embrace this amazing opportunity."

    The CFC is the most inclusive workplace giving campaign in the world with over 22,000 charities benefiting from the campaign. The first CFC campaign was conducted in 1964 as an experiment in six cities. The result was a substantial increase in contributions over previous federal charity fundraising efforts. An annual fund raising campaign was highly favored by the federal community and has grown into a highly successful campaign.
