if not already explained fully -
CFC - Combined Federal Campaign : it is the Federal Government's way of
getting charitable contributions from their employee's for local, state,
national, and private
This includes the various United Way campaigns - in Md, "most" of the
employees would probably give to the United Way of Central Md;
the United Way in turn would then provide funds to the Baltimore Area
BSA (the council that serves most of the Central Md area).
CFC normally runs from Sep/Oct time frame thru early Dec; FOS starts abt that
SME/FOS - a Boy Scout initiated atempt to offset the drop off of United Way
funding since the early ' 70s - initially as a result of declining
enrollment, later as a result of the BSA policy on not admitting gays and
atheists int o the BSA.
hope this helps - prob more than any of you ever wanted to know
abt CFC :-)
