Combined Federal Campaign
When You Give Through The CFC, YOU Make It Possible!
Federal and Military employees can take advantage of one of the most effective and efficient ways to support the important work of the Wild Dolphin Project by donating through the Combined Federal Campaign. We count on your gifts to support our ongoing research, as well as enabling us to learn more about the dolphins and their environment in which they live. Donating through the CFC will allow us to gain more knowledge, better equipping us to help protect them In Their World…On Their Terms....
Please join the effort to support our ongoing research by designating your CFC gift to #69488 when you make your pledge.
Just a small amount each pay period can make a world of difference to our research. For more information about EarthShare and the Wild Dolphin Project in the CFC, please visit: www.earthshare.org/cfc.html
