As the Federal government is now open, we anticipate federal agencies will be holding numerous campaign events this month and into November and early December.
RAMPING UP FOR CFC EVENTS
Since many CFC events were cancelled or postponed due to the government shutdown, many agencies will ramp up their campaigns quickly. Many large federal events may schedule their events on the same day. This presents an opportunity to engage more of your volunteers or participate if you haven’t already.
IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO PARTICIPATE IN EVENTS
If you have not participated in campaign events this year, it’s not too late to start! These events provide you with a chance to meet prospective donors and build awareness of your organization. If you have not already signed up, please fill out the attached form and either fax or email it back to Jeff Brown.
We are still receiving requests from public and private sector employers to showcase your promotional items at CFC, state/local public sector events as well as at private sector campaign events. We would like to provide these campaigns with your promotional items, give-aways, goodies and door prizes in order to promote your charity at these various campaign events (i.e. kick-offs, fairs, speaking engagements, etc.) throughout the nation. Please send them to: America’s Charities c/o Jeff Brown 14150 Newbrook Drive Suite 110 Chantilly, VA 20151
AMERICA'S CHARITIES EVENT WITH FAIRFAX COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
As we continue to focus on the CFC, our work in the private sector is also at the forefront. On Thursday, October 10, 2013, America’s Charities and the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce
hosted #GivingUnderTheInfluence – a panel discussion about employee engagement in a digital culture
The #GivingUnderTheInfluence discussion focused on how our digital culture is transforming employee engagement and the impact it is having on the landscape of workplace giving. The session was moderated by Debra Snider, Vice President, Operations, GuideStar. Panelists included Emily Simone, Director of Global Community Outreach, Lockheed Martin; Tom Watson, President, CauseWired; and Steve Greenhalgh, Senior Advisor, America's Charities.
We were able to capture part of the discussion
as many participants tweeted during the event.
