Libraries Receives Combined Federal Campaign Merit Award

_GYP1498During the Fall 2008 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), many Smithsonian Institution Libraries staff members gave generously. Library staff contributed to a variety of charities via payroll deduction and one-time giving.

Because of this generosity, and because the Libraries exceeded its CFC goal, the Libraries was one of eleven Smithsonian units to be given a Merit Award at the CFC awards ceremony on March 19th. This award is given to units where there is either 50% employee participation or gifts equaling $125 per capita. The Libraries had 106 potential donors with a goal of $9,500 – and actually raised $14,689 from 21 donors. Congratulations!
