In June 2018, the CHEST Foundation was approved to participate as a National Organization in the 2018 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). The CFC is the only authorized solicitation of employees in the federal workplace on behalf of charitable organizations. As an approved organization, we will be listed on the 2018 CFC Charity List and receive our own code to promote to donors. Receiving this approval to participate in the CFC is a wonderful honor for the CHEST Foundation, and we are excited to share our news with you!
CHEST Foundation President, Lisa K. Moores, MD, FCCP, shares her insight and value about this new opportunity to engage and support the foundation’s mission of clinical research, community service, and patient education. “As a long-time federal employee, I am extremely excited that I can now show my support of the CHEST Foundation through employee giving during the annual CFC campaign. This will also allow me to share the story of the CHEST Foundation with colleagues. When they choose who they want to give to for their work place giving, they can support the CHEST Foundation, as well. This is a great opportunity for the CHEST Foundation, as I know each year during the CFC campaign (September -January), it is highly encouraged and promoted to employees. This increased exposure is very exciting and will hopefully allow us to strengthen the philanthropic work we do with the Foundation.”
Stay tuned for more information as we kick off the Combined Federal Campaign in September 2018!
