CFC Cause of the Week: Education




Lack of education is one of the biggest contributors to poverty. Around the world, approximately 114 million young people lack basic reading and writing skills. From books to uniforms, and school lunches to afterschool tutoring, it takes a community to build the next generation of leaders. Help give young people around the world the best chance to succeed by providing the educational support that they need – pledge to a CFC-supported, education-focused charity.

Here’s how you can make an impact:

  • $10 buys 50 books for preschoolers in a metropolitan area.
  • $50 tutors a child in reading and writing for an entire year.
  • $240 provides a child with access to a computer skills class

My Cause is Education


My cause is education for the underprivileged. I grew up in the Washington, D.C., inner city and am a product of DC Public Schools. I was fortunate and blessed enough to have parents who worked and fought for my brother and me to have the best educational opportunities possible. We must all remember at some point, we needed a little help. The CFC allows Federal employees to return the favor some of us were granted, by providing us an easy way to give back to the causes that matter most to us!
