10/5/2012 - DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del.  -- The 51st Combined Federal Campaign kicked off Oct. 2 here. This year's campaign lasts until Nov. 12, 2012.

The CFC is one of two Air Force-sponsored fundraisers service members can donate to on an annual basis. The CFC catalog compiles more than 1,000 local, national and international charities, each with a unique cause. Former President John F. Kennedy issued an executive order in 1961 that established the CFC as a way for charities to solicit funds from federal employees.

Each group has a CFC representative assigned to them, and some of those groups will have squadron points of contacts as well. The representatives accept donations and provide information on the CFC and its charities. There is no minimum donation, and service members can donate to as many charities as they wish.

The 512th Airlift Wing goal is to give all wing members a chance to donate to the campaign with the hopes of raising $14,000, said 2nd Lt. Michael Spencer, the wing's project lead for the CFC.

"Realistically, we only have two (unit training assemblies) to make this happen," he added. "But, I'm sure we'll surpass the goal, because we've got some great members in the wing."

If an Airman chooses to donate, all they need to do is browse through the CFC Brochure, select their charity of choice, enter the charity code and list how much they choose to donate on the CFC form and provide the form, with payment, to the group CFC representative. CFC brochures can be downloaded at www.512aw.afrc.af.mil/shared/media/document/AFD-121005-033.pdf , and forms can be obtained from CFC representatives.

Personnel can contribute cash, check or money order, with all CFC contributions being tax deductible. Civilians and Air Reserve Technicians can do payroll deductions; however, traditional reservists cannot.

For more information or to donate, Airmen should contact one of the following CFC representatives:

- 512th Operations Group, Master Sgt. Broderick Williams, (302) 677-3778;
- 512th Mission Support Group, Capt. Jeremy Reynolds, (302) 677-3489;
- 512th Maintenance Group, 2nd Lt. Michael Spencer, (302) 677-6728;
- 512th Aerospace Medicine Squadron, Chief Master Sgt. David Townson, (302) 677-2750; and
