Provide Promotional Items
Increase your charity’s visibility by sending promotional items (pens, screen wipes, bags, cups etc.) for campaign workers to use at campaign events. Your organization will be responsible for the shipping costs. The deadline for shipping promotion materials items is September 2, 2016. For more information see contact below.
Partner with the CVACFC
You are invited to attend campaign events and/or provide volunteer opportunities for campaign workers. Attending events allows you to spread the word about your own organization and the other organizations participating in the CFC. Providing volunteer opportunities engages these individuals in a meaningful way and motivates them as they help raise funds throughout the campaign season. Sign up for the speaker’s bureau on the CVACFC website under charities/federations. Here is the link to register. You will receive a confirmation email along with the event process for the 2016 campaign.
Tell Your Story
Success stories show our contributors the impact their donations are asking. The CVACFC is looking for some very compelling stories (accompanied by a photo) that can be used on the CVACFC website, social media sites and/or other printed campaign materials. Please note that your organization name will be replaced with “a CVACFC funded organization” or other similar phrase as CFC regulations prevent us from promoting or endorsing any specific organization. You will be asked to provide the following authorization: “I authorize the Central Virginia Area Combined Federal Campaign (CVACFC) and its authorized representatives, the right to print, publicize and edit as desired, photographs, stories and information provided for their use by our organization for the purpose of promoting the CVACFC.”
The CVACFC is also looking for compelling stories accompanied by a prop to share when training the campaign representatives.
Federal employees in the Central Virginia Area pledged over $730,000 in pledges for more than 1,033 charitable organizations in the 2015 CFC CVA.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities and have questions, please contact the CVACFC Program Assistant, Kristi Kennell at email@example.com.
