Calling all Federal Military, Postal and Civilian Workers: Its CFC Pledge Time Again!

Its CFC Pledge Time Again! The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign. Each year, Federal employees raise millions of dollars on behalf of charitable organizations across the country and overseas. Please let your Federal civilian, postal and military family members and friends know that they can support the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (FPWR) during this campaign season. Many of them are already donating to their favorite charities, but they may not know another beloved organization, FPWR, is an option too! During the 2014 solicitation period, September 15, 2014 through December 15, 2014, please encourage the Federal employees you know to give through the CFC to FPWR because:

  • Payroll deduction lets them spread their contribution across the entire year;
  • It gives FPWR a steady source of revenue throughout the year;
  • It is convenient for them (they can pledge online) and provides them with tax records; and
  • It lets them help improve the future for their angel with PWS!

To learn how to pledge through the CFC, please contact your local CFC office. The CFC's 
Campaign Locator will assist you in identifying the CFC office where your official duty station is located. The FPWR 5 digit CFC code is 41543. Please check out a 2014 Campaign Video: Every donation, large and small, really does make a difference to FPWR!

Susan Hedstrom is the Executive Director for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research. Passionate about finding treatments for PWS, Susan joined FPWR in 2009 shortly after her son, Jayden, was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Rather than accepting PWS as it has been defined, Susan has chosen to work with a team of pro-active and tireless individuals to accelerate PWS research in order to change the natural history of PWS. Inspired by her first FPWR conference and the team of researchers that were working to find answers for the syndrome, she hosted her first One SMALL Step walk in 2010 and began the development of the One SMALL Step walk program which now raises over $1.5 million a year for PWS research.
