2022 First Week to Give



Thank you to WSECU for making this promotion possible!

Since the program started in 1984, state employees and retirees have come together to donate more than $160 million dollars to local, national and global charities through the CFD.

To celebrate the 2022 Annual Giving Campaign, the CFD has teamed up with WSECU on the First Week to Give 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. 


  • • Donations must be made between October 3th, 2022 and October 9, 2022.

  • • Paper contribution forms must be received at the CFD state office no later than close of business on October 12th, 2022.

  • • Send all paper contribution forms directly to the CFD state office, not to CFD volunteers located elsewhere.

• It’s your choice - We allow you choose where your money is going as long as the charity is a registered 501c3 and part of our program.

• Being part of the community - By donating through the CFD you are joining more than 100,000 state employees and retirees representing 110+ agencies all across the great state of Washington!

• Anonymity - If you'd like, you can donate with complete anonymity.
