NASA Greatly Exceeds Federal Campaign Donation Goal

Federal employees at Kennedy Space Center contributed more than $389,000 in donations to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) in their recent annual fund-raising drive surpassing the campaign goal of $294,000, making this year's donations the largest in history. More than 82 percent of employees participated in the campaign.

"I am extremely proud of the KSC family," said Center Director Jim Kennedy. "With the recent hurricanes and the damage and hardships many endured, the generosity and caring displayed by KSC employees is overwhelming."

CFC chairperson Nap Carroll said, "The success of this campaign is a result of the tremendous outpouring of support for those less fortunate than us. The campaign's success is a reflection of the type of employees we have here at KSC. They 'Became the Heroes by Sharing, Caring and Giving'."

The CFC is the annual fund-raising drive conducted nationally by federal employees in their workplace each fall. Each year, federal employees and military personnel raise millions of dollars through the CFC that benefits thousands of non-profit charities.

"The CFC is a most effective way to make your caring count every day," added Kennedy. "Through the CFC, we are changing lives in the community, our Nation, and throughout the world. The CFC is "Caring-Sharing-Helping," not just in the fall while we raise funds but year round, by making a positive difference in people's lives."
