The Combined Fund Drive would not be possible without its volunteers and our community business partners. Below is a list of Washington State organizations that have helped make the CFD what it is today and kept our costs low, ensuring that more money goes to help our community.
Twinstar Credit Union has been an incredible partner for the Combined Fund Drive over the years. In the past, Twinstar has sponsored major events like the CFD's 30th Birthday Party in 2014, which featured the Lombardi Trophy and raised more than $11,000 for the program. The organization has also sponsored the Football Kickoff Online Auction, raising more than $7,000 every year for the CFD.
This year, Twinstar gave another $10,000 to the CFD, agreeing to sponsor the Leadership Breakfast, an event that is meant to inspire and motivate agency directors and lead volunteers.
WSECU worked hand-in-hand with CFD on the wildly successful First Week to Give promotion, providing more than $7,000 worth of Starbucks Cards for donors who chose to give $5 or more through their paychecks during the first week of the campaign.
This year, WSECU has agreed to continue this tradition, helping the CFD raise thousands in just seven short days during the beginning of the Annual Giving Campaign.
Each year, Fred Meyer helps the CFD by donating $500 worth of gift cards for the efforts of volunteers on the campaign.
For three years, Meconi's Italian Subs has been generously donating sandwiches for each of the Campaign Leader trainings that are conducted in the Thurston County area. This gesture equates to close to $2,000 in savings each year for the CFD.
The Seattle Seahawks support change in their community through numerous different initiatives, including support for the Combined Fund Drive. The team worked to help the CFD acquire season tickets for fundraising events, provided incredible speakers for the annual leadership breakfast, and event sent the Lombardi Trophy to the Capitol for the CFD's 30th Birthday Party.
