Workplace Giving

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer welcomes gifts through workplace giving campaigns. These may include the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), or company sponsored annual workplace giving drives.

The CFC is a government-based program available to all federal employees, U.S. Military and U.S. Postal Workers. If you fit these criteria, you can support the Foundation for Women’s Cancer through participating in the CFC, which runs annually September 1 through January 15. Simply use the Foundation’s national code, 86802, to designate the Foundation for Women’s Cancer as your payroll deduction beneficiary. It’s that easy.

Often times, companies conduct their own workplace giving drives. In these circumstances, you can check with your employer to determine if the Foundation for Women’s Cancer could be included among the charities eligible for employee-directed contributions. If fighting gynecologic cancers (cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, vulvar) has meaning to you, let your company know by contacting human resources and get the ball rolling today.
