Welcome to Our New CFC Director
I am delighted to announce that Felicia Lesnett joined the CFC team as our new Director. Felicia began her journey on May 11, 2015 and we will be working together until my upcoming retirement in just a few weeks.
As Campaign Director, Felicia is responsible for directing the activities of the 2015 Campaign. "I am very excited to begin this new journey and look forward to working with the Local Federal Coordinating Committee and the entire Federal community to help fulfill the mission to help those in need. I am fortunate to be joining such a respected organization that prides itself on improving the local community, our state and our nation,” said Felicia.
Felicia comes to us with more than 20 years of experience in the marketing industry and ten of those years in the non-profit sector. Most recently, she was the marketing communications specialist for The Providence Center, a non-profit behavioral health care provider, supporting people with mental health and addiction issues. She has expertise in marketing communications, event management and development initiatives. Felicia also volunteers at the John E. Moran Foundation that supports people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and was a core committee member for planning the statewide RI Rally for Recovery event from 2006-2014. The Rally is an annual event to provide education, awareness and support to those in recovery from mental health, addiction or developmental disabilities.
Along with her upbeat personality, knowledge, professionalism, I am confident Felicia will play a key role in providing the same passion, commitment and dedication to the CFC as I have for the past fifteen years.
Please join me in welcoming our new Campaign Director! Felicia can be reached at 401/942-2395 or email@example.com and will be located at 200 Niantic Avenue in Providence, Rhode Island.

OPM Releases Nationwide Results of Campaign 2014
Thanks to your efforts and the generosity of more than 500,000 Federal employees, the Combined Federal Campaign raised more than $193 million for local, national and international charities during the 2014 Campaign. These funds make a real and meaningful difference to countless individuals throughout the world.
You should be proud of this accomplishment, and I hope you know how grateful we are for everything you’ve done to make CFC 2014 a huge success.
One of the highlights of this year’s campaign was the introduction of Universal Giving. Federal employees were able to donate not just to the causes listed in their local CFC Charity Lists but to any of approximately 22,000 CFC participating organizations.
Your 2014 pledges are now being distributed to your charities of choice and those pledges will continue to be disbursed throughout 2015 as we receive allotments from the Federal payroll offices.
