    Singapore Area Coordinator Finalizes Successful Combined Federal Campaign

    SINGAPORE -- The U.S. military community in Singapore is primed to successfully close their seasonal participation in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) which ends on Dec. 15.

    The CFC acts as an effective platform in providing all federal employees the opportunity to give to a charity or relief organization of their choice. The system allows the user to sort through charity options and then receive education and background information on applicable organizations.

    “The CFC is a way to give back to organizations that have been vetted by the military as legitimate charities,” said Chief Religious Programs Specialist Michael Caldera, Singapore Region CFC coordinator.

    Throughout this year’s campaign, the Singapore region saw a consistent weekly incline in contribution. More than $5,000 was raised for organizations thus far; whose benefits will immensely outweigh the monetary value of what the Singapore military community donated. Additionally, Singapore CFC coordinators have reached their goal in raising awareness for CFC and its charitable organizations, while having a 100 percent contact rate.

    Representatives at each department and tenant command of Commander, Logistics Group Western Pacific and Singapore Area Coordinator provided federal employees with brochures, pledge cards and additional information regarding the campaign to all potential donors during the campaign.
    The CFC today is known to be the most inclusive workplace giving campaign in the world with the number of participating charities estimated at over 20,000 nonprofit charitable organizations worldwide.

    “The biggest success that came from this year’s campaign was that people voluntarily donated their time and money,” said Caldera. “To see people wanting to openly be a part of the campaign and willingly give to charity because they genuinely believed in the cause was a win in my book.”
