WUWF 88.1 FM, the National Public Radio affiliate operated by the University of West Florida, is pleased to be a participating agency in the 2016 Combined Federal Campaign.
Much like the United Way campaign operates in the private business sector, the CFC enables Federal employees to contribute to the causes of their choice through a single campaign conducted once a year in all Federal workplaces.
The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
WUWF will be participating in three regional CFC campaigns: EscaRosa, Okaloosa-Walton Counties, and Southwest Alabama. These campaigns include all Federal personnel (military and civilian) from Naval Air Station Pensacola, Whiting Field, Corry Station, Saufley Field, Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field, and all Federal offices located in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Walton County areas in Florida, as well as Baldwin County, Alabama.
“We have a large number of listeners and supporters who work for the Federal government in this area,” said Pat Crawford, Executive Director of WUWF Public Media, “many of whom have encouraged us to get into the Combined Federal Campaign. Participating in the CFC this year is particularly important for us, as support for the station is shifting away from grant funding to more listener support.”
For those Federal employees interested in designating contributions to WUWF, the radio station is listed under the name of the University of West Florida Foundation, the 501(c)3 organization responsible for handling contributions to the station.
The CFC number for WUWF 88.1 FM is 33728
