2017 NIH Combined Federal Campaign

2017 Combined Federal Campaign Solicitation Period

The spirit of public service and giving thrives at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It’s no surprise that NIH employees are among the most generous donors to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). For the past 12 years, NIH staff have pledged over $2 million per year to their favorite charities. The active solicitation period for the 2017 CFC begins on October 2, 2017 through January 12, 2018. For more info visit cfc.nih.gov.

CFC NIH IC Directors’ Challenge 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

Each year NIH leadership SHOWS SOME LOVE for the CFC and show off their competitive spirit by competing in NIH’s Annual CFC Directors Challenge.  This year’s challenge, led by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), is a 3-on-3 basketball tournament.  Join us on Thurs., October 26th from 10am – 11:30 am at the Clinical Center’s Outdoor Basketball Court (located close to the Lipsett Auditorium).  For more info visit cfc.nih.gov.

Trick-Or-Treat With the CFC

Stop by the Bldg. 31A Patio on Tuesday, October 31 from 11am – 1pm for a hair-raisingly good time with food, prizes, and treats! Come in costume!  Be scary, be silly, be unique but above all else be creative…especially if you want to win a prize!  The “fangtastic” festivities will include trick-or-treating at the charity tables while learning how the organizations help people in our community and come out for a bite from local food vendors including Chick-Fil-A and Funnel Fare.  Also visit Parti Pics Photo Booth and take pictures in costume or with props they provide.

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

NIH is one of the leading CFC contributors in the area but we still need your help. We can’t meet our goal without you. Any amount you can give helps those in need! Federal employees are encouraged to designate their contributions directly to as many as five charitable CFC organizations. Support the NIH Charities!

The Foundation for the NIH #29165
Donors to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) advance biomedical research and support the mission of the NIH.  The FNIH convenes experts, individuals and corporations around biomedical research goals—all in an effort to respond to the most urgent priorities in human health, both domestically and around the world.  By leveraging the vast resources of the NIH with research expertise, equipment, infrastructure and funding from the private sector, the FNIH manages public-private partnerships and secures funding for research across the biological spectrum of diseases and disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, autism, bone, cancer and new drug development.  The FNIH also supports the next generation of scientists by helping fund educational and training programs at the NIH and raises funds for the Edmond J. Safra Family Lodge, which provides free lodging to the NIH Clinical Center patients and their families.  Visit www.fnih.org for more details about how the Foundation is turning discovery into health.
