Agency Honored in Four Categories Recognizing Employees’ Efforts
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Feb. 17, 2016) – National Credit Union Administration employees pledged $101,179 to the 2015 Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area, earning multiple honors from the world’s largest workplace giving campaign.
“NCUA’s employees are both dedicated public servants and model corporate citizens,” NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz said. “This year, the generosity of NCUA’s workforce exceeded our prescribed goal by more than 40 percent. The agency’s CFC pledge is making a significant difference in people’s lives locally, across the country and around the world.”
NCUA received awards from CFCNCA in four categories:
- The President’s Award, for reporting units with a 75 percent participation rate or per capita pledges to the campaign of at least $275. NCUA’s per capita pledge was $294.
- The Summit Award, for departments or agencies that achieve an increase of three percent in total dollars raised from the previous year. NCUA increased its contribution by more than 22.5 percent.
- The Participation Achievement Award, for entities that grow employee participation by at least two percent from the previous year. NCUA participation rose by 15 percent.
- The eGiving Award, for reporting units with at least a 10 percent increase in paperless pledges and a minimum of 10 paperless payroll donations. NCUA staff made 95 paperless donations.
NCUA staffers organized several fundraising events, including a chili cook-off, a bake sale, and an auction, during the pledge drive.
Coordinated by the Office of Personnel Management, the Combined Federal Campaign (opens new window) is the world’s largest annual workplace charity effort, with almost 200 campaigns throughout the country and overseas, raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by federal civilian, military and postal workers during the campaign season, which runs from Sept. 1 through Dec. 15, support eligible non-profit organizations providing health and human-service benefits.
