COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN
Federal government employees have another way to support the C&O Canal Trust! The Trust is currently participating in 11 chapters of the Combined Federal Campaign. The CFC is the nation's leading fundraising program aimed at providing federal employees a cost-efficient and hassle-free system through which they may support their favorite nonprofits.
For the C&O Canal National Historical Park to benefit from the campaign, federal employees and military personnel must designate their pledge for the C&O Canal Trust, which is listed as charity #98180 in both campaigns. Please urge your federally employed friends, family, and neighbors to learn more about the CFC and take advantage of this simple and rewarding opportunity to support the C&O Canal Trust.

WORLD BANK COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS FUND
The Trust was recently nominated and accepted into the World Bank Community Connections Fund, which provides a way for World Bank employees, consultants, and reitrees to make financial contributions to charitable organizations. Employees can use an online pledging system, known as EGive, which will be posted on the World Bank Group's Intranet. Bank Group retirees can find a link to the pledge form posted on the 1818 Society's website, which is the World Bank Group's association of retirees. The list of eligible Campaign organizations will also be posted on these websites. People can designate their pledges to up to ten organizations maximum. Staff have the option of making their pledge payments either by check or by payroll deductions for up to 24 pay periods; retirees and consultants must pay by check only.
