This statewide project leverages millions for local communities. Our contributions to CFD can support the work we hold most important anywhere in the state.</p><p>Both active and retired Washington State public employees may participate in this program, the fourth largest public employee giving program in the nation. About 5,000 individuals pledge more than $5 million each year, benefitting more than 3,800 local, national and global charities. Those are big numbers and CWU's participation can make them even bigger.</p><p>Making a donation is easy. Simply follow this link www.cwu.edu/cfd.&nbsp; Just choose from the list of participating organizations and pledge your 2014 CFD contribution. If you prefer, fill out a contribution form and take it to the CWU Department of Human Resources in Bouillon Hall. CFD makes giving easy by allowing monthly, recurring and limited-time contributions. You can even write a personal check or authorize payroll deductions through the CWU payroll system. You decide what works best for you.</p><p>Some CWU employees are already giving their time to this effort. Special thanks go to the CWU Giving Committee:</p><p>Michelle Adams &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Stephanie Harris &nbsp; &nbsp;Leona Lindvig<br>Joseph Bryant &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Linda Huber &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Melody Madlem<br>Edna Comedy (Chairperson) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;Drue Larson &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Charity McCright<br>Sarah Feeney&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Claire Layman &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Tracy Plouse<br>Lindsey Ulrich</p><p>Remember:&nbsp; The amount you give isn’t what’s important. Every dollar helps support important community services. Help CWU reach 100-percent participation in CFD this year. With your help, we can do it!</p><p><img alt="" src="/lynnwood/sites/cts.cwu.edu.lynnwood/files/images/gaudino%20sig.jpg" style="width: 138px; height: 61px;"><br>James L.
