In 2012, New York’s 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation joined together to answer a question: what can we do to better the world? Their answer was Giving Tuesday, and 8 years later, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is celebrated as a time for people to do good. This day has become a worldwide movement, inspiring countless people to donate, volunteer, and make the world a better place. Giving Tuesday has grown so large that it is associated with the string of days following the Thanksgiving holiday: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Small Business Saturday.
Since 1961 the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) has been the official workplace giving campaign of the federal government. The CFC allows federal employees to donate monetary gifts and provides volunteer opportunities to approved charities. Being one of the most successful fundraising campaigns since it its inception, the CFC has raised more than $8.4 billion dollars.
The Export Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) and its generous employees has always been an active participant in the CFC campaign. Brittany Walker, Deputy to the SVP for External Engagement said “Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to give back to those less fortunate, especially in light of these trying times. As EXIM’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) manager this year, I am encouraged that our federal colleagues at EXIM will give back and exceed our agency’s goal.” If you are interested in learning more about the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) please visit https://givecfc.org/
