NCAC Joins America's Charities
Tuesday, February 04, 2014
We are pleased to announce our new
partnership with Community
First - America's Charities of Greater Washington, D.C. America’s Charities’ local
federation, Community 1st, addresses a diverse
range of social concerns and needs here in the Greater Washington, D.C. area
and surrounding communities and supports some of the community’s most respected
charities, including Catholic Charities, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Make
A Wish, and Habitat for Humanity. It was only less than five years ago that a
group of Washington area charities banded together to raise money without the
United Way and it worked! Community 1st
continues to exceed their workplace fundraising goal and lessen the gap from
their competitor United Way of the National Capital Area.
a board vote in August 2013, the United Way of the National Capital Area
(UWNCA) decided to sever ties with the Boy Scouts of America, National Capital
Area Council. While UWNCA has decided to no longer
supporter us, our many other United Way partners continue to support our great
work in their communities. To see a list of all local federations who support our work, visit www.NCACBSA.org/workplacegiving.
UWNCA has removed our Council name from their
partner agency listing for all workplace giving campaigns in both the private
and public sectors, including the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital
Area(CFC) and employee giving campaigns at local businesses such as
Dominion, Freddie Mac and ExxonMobil. What is IMPORTANT to note is that donors
can still write-in our name and we WILL receive their donations! We simply are
no longer listed as a partner agency; this is really the only difference.
Who Are Our United Way Partners?
United Way, Piedmont
United Way, United
Way of Frederick County, United Way of Calvert County, United
Way of Charles County and United
Way of St. Mary's County.
What Do You Need To Do?
We are very excited to join America’s
Charities, who is also partnered with National BSA! America’s Charities’
local federation is called Community First. This foundation will give us local
representation in the same service areas once only covered by UWNCA.
America’s Charities also holds many local
giving campaigns in the workplace throughout the greater DC area. If you have a
company that is interested in learning more about America’s Charities and
Community First, please direct them to Michelle Lynch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And remember, if you don’t see us listed in
your workplace giving campaign; just write us in – National Capital Area
Council, Boy Scouts of America.
