Combined Federal Campaign
Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) is excited to announce our participation in the 2020 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) — one of the largest and most successful workplace fundraising campaigns in the world.
CNEWA extends a warm welcome to federal employees, the military and retirees. Your support provides help to those most in need throughout the regions we serve in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Northern Africa and India.
For nearly 100 years, CNEWA has accompanied the Eastern churches in hard-to-reach places, serving the poorest of the poor. When disaster strikes, we are there — and we stay. The key to our successes and effectiveness is being on the ground. We help identify and provide solutions where limited resources and overwhelming need collide. Your contributions will provide shelter, food, education and hope to the most vulnerable individuals throughout the historic homelands of the churches of the East.
With six regional offices located in the countries we serve, CNEWA has “boots on the ground” who live and work among the very people served by our organization.
Whether you are returning or pledging for the first time, participation in the CFC is a great way to extend that spirit of service, as the funds raised help those who need it most. Did you know that new legislation in 2020 allows taxpayers to deduct $300 ($600 for married couples) for qualifying charitable donations even when taking the standard deduction? Additionally, if you need to make a required minimum distribution from your retirement account you can give to CNEWA through the CFC.
The CFC registration code for CNEWA is #68580.
