Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation Named an Official National Charity in the 2017 OPM’s Combined Federal Campaign

Federal employees and retirees may choose the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation (CFC# 87197) when they make one-time gifts or choose payroll deductions beginning in October.

PITTSBURGH, PA--The U.S. Office of Personnel Management has approved the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation as an official nonprofit organization in the 2017 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), through the Heart & Health Charities federation.

The federal workplace-giving program kicks off across the country this month and will run through mid-January. When the CFC site goes live later this month, Federal employees (civilian, postal and military donors), retirees, and civilian annuitants may select the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation (CFC number #87197) and make a one-time gift or choose payroll deductions. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Ben Carson, MD, is serving as the 2017 National Honorary Chairperson.

The CFC is a 56-year Federal workplace-giving tradition that has raised more than $8.2 billion for charitable organizations. It is one of the largest workplace giving campaigns in the world. The funds raised each year through the campaign help neighbors in need around the corner, across the nation, and throughout the world. Through the contributions of civilian and military Federal employees, the campaign generated more than $167 million in 2016 for the thousands of participating local, national, and international charities.

“The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation is honored to have been approved by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, through the Heart Health Charities Foundation, as a nonprofit organization that is worthy of support from Federal employees and retirees,” said Mary Newman, MS, president. “Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., affecting about 1,000 people of all ages every day, and unfortunately only one in 10 victims survives. Our mission is to increase survival from this serious, but treatable, condition by serving as an information clearinghouse and conducting research and outreach campaigns to raise awareness and help save lives.”
