CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with more than 300 CFC campaigns throughout the country and internationally to help to raise millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non–profit organizations, like Maryland Community Connection that provide health and human service benefits throughout Maryland.
The most common method of making a donation is by filling out the traditional paper pledge card and having the amount that you choose deducted from each paycheck. You may also use the pledge card to make a donation by check or cash. You can use the CFCNCA website to help in the pledge process, and in departments or agencies that are part of the CFC-e ™ program you’ll be able to print your pledge card on line. Remember to select 81345 to support Maryland Community Connection.
With your funding support, we can improve the quality of our programs and services for individuals with disabilities and provide increased access and opportunities for these individuals to build strong, sustainable communities.
As a non-profit agency, Maryland Community Connection cannot achieve greatness without the support of friends. Contributing to CFC and Maryland Community Connection is truly a gift for the future of individuals with developmental disabilities. Your gift of vision, made because you value the importance of the services that Maryland Community Connection provides, will ensure the agency’s continued growth and success.
Reasons to Give
But it’s not nearly enough. On any given day in Prince George’s County, about 1,000 people with developmental disabilities need services. The number of individuals with developmental disabilities in need of services increases daily, but they are turned away because of lack of services or funding. As a donor, you can help us as we face the challenge of reductions in funding and human services by local, state, and the federal government. Your tax-deductible contributions mean Maryland Community Connection and the CFC can extend its reach to vulnerable members of our communities.
We need your help to help individuals with developmental disabilities. Securing resources to meet the needs of people with developmental disabilities is increasingly difficult. Your generosity helps to ensure that Maryland Community Connection will be there for individuals who want to achieve the dreams of independence.
