AFRMC Joins Federal Workplace

American Friends of Rabin Medical Center is proud to have met the high standards set by the U.S. government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign. For more than four decades, the U.S. government has sponsored the Combined Federal Campaign, the world's largest workplace fundraising drive. Federal employees - civilian, military and postal - are invited to support eligible national and local charities that are approved by the U.S. government. U.S. soldiers on military bases also participate in this program.

Employees choose the groups they wish to support from a list of charities that have submitted applications and been deemed qualified. Each fall, Federal employees are handed a catalogue of the eligible national and local charities. Approximately 1,900 national organizations and 40,000 local organizations qualify for the Campaign annually. Each year more than 1.3 million employees pledge over a quarter billion dollars. Donors may give once or request that a specific amount be withheld from their paychecks throughout the following calendar year. Employees overwhelmingly select the ongoing payroll deduction program. Over a third of the federal workforce participates in the CFC each year, with the average pledge exceeding $150.

AFRMC is listed in the Israel Fund Federation group (formerly Tzedakah-Israel), which works for "justice, peace, and charity in Israel." AFRMC obtains contributions on behalf of the Rabin Medical Center so that it may remodel and refurbish its facilities with the most advanced technology and equipment. AFRMC also participates in the Campaign Calendar, an opportunity for states and local governments to follow the lead of the U.S. government by also offering their employees the opportunity to donate to notfor- profit organizations through workplace giving campaigns.
