Total pledges were up more than 5 percent in 2009, exceeding 2008 contributions by $3.3 million.
Federal employees also exceeded the 2009 campaign goal of $64 million by $2 million.
The Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to all the generous Federal employees who made this year's campaign such a success. At our campaign finale, Linda Washington, Local Federal Coordinating Committee Chair and Assistant Secretary for Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, summed it up best when she said, "Each year, your public service spirit as Federal workers grows stronger. You stood by your commitments and stepped up to help millions of people in need here in our home community, across the nation and around the world."
