Together they will encompass Baltimore City, and the counties of Allegeny, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Caroline, Cecil, Carroll, Dorchester, Frederick, Garrett, Harford, Howard, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Washington, Wicomico and Worchester in Maryland; Accomack and Northampton Counties in Virginia; and Mineral County in West Virginia, and it will operate under the Chesapeake Bay Area Combined Federal Campaign name.
This merger will provide efficiencies in the execution of future campaigns, allow more charities to apply, and provide opportunities for online giving to all federal employees.
Mary Chizmar, 2012 Chair of the Western Maryland Combined Federal Campaign, says the merge will simply make campaign efforts and opportunities to donate seamless. The hope and goal is to result in a more successful employee-run campaign.
According to the letter sent to agency leaders, the Western Maryland CFC will continue to process donations made during the 2012 campaign, distributing donated funds to designated charities in 2013.
“We look forward to a terrific partnership with the Chesapeake Bay CFC,” said Chizmar.
