The Combined Federal Campaign Announces Cause of the Week: Environmental Protection

December 11, 2023

The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) has announced that this week’s theme is Environmental Protection! For more than 60 years, the Combined Federal Campaign has been the official workplace-giving campaign for federal employees and retirees. It has raised more than $8.6 billion for charities and people in need, making a real and meaningful difference throughout the world.

Thanks to generous contributions made through CFC, many organizations and charities have been able to significantly make a difference in the well-being of the planet, such as helping communities experiencing structural damage from natural disasters, developing new technologies to rid plastic from the ocean, discovering new ways to remove excess carbon from the air, and more! 

As communities across the globe are experiencing the impacts of a changing climate, the CFC provides an ideal opportunity to join forces and support climate-smart and nature-based solutions to protect critical yet vulnerable places like the Amazon Rainforest.

By donating to Amazon Conservation, your support can help make an impact in the following ways: 

  • Provide local communities and governments with the knowledge, resources, and capacity needed to prevent and respond quickly to wildfires
  • Raising awareness about the importance of protecting and restoring the habitat of critical species like the jaguar
  • Teach local producers and harvesters about the impacts of climate change on their harvest and how to sustainably maintain their income via the local forest-based economy
  • Train indigenous communities on the latest technology to better protect their territories

Now through January 15, government employees and retirees can Give Happy through the Combined Federal Campaign and join others looking to have a real collective impact and protect the Amazon and its habitat. Anyone can be a changemaker through the CFC, so Give Happy and be a good steward of the Amazon by donating to Amazon Conservation!
