In addition to monetary pledges, CFC donors will be able to pledge their volunteer time to causes they care about in 2017. Volunteerism provides valuable work experience, builds meaningful community connections, and creates feelings of pride, loyalty, and engagement with charitable organizations. The total number of hours, and their monetary value, may be shared with agencies at the completion of the campaign. The monetized value is not counted toward agency goals. Look for a speical symbol in the charity list that identifies charities that are accepting volunteers.
