2021 National Philanthropy Day


To celebrate the 2021 National Philanthropy Day, the CFD has teamed up with WSECU on a one day promotion! This special giveaway is for any state employee or retiree who starts or increases their payroll contributions by $5 or more, or volunteers at least one hour with a member charity. Those that qualify will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card.
