The 1980 NATO Base campaign was considered successful as the Kefla- vik commands collected over $43,500 in campaign contributions, bettering the previous year's mark by over $5,000. CFC contributions provides fun- ding to volunteer, non-profit organ- izations on the local, national and international level. Funds go to groups such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America; the March of Dimes, Save the Children, Project Hope, the American Red Cross, Mus- cular Dystrophy, the National Kidney Foundation, the American Heart As- sociation and many more. CFC funds also aid the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in conducting research, care and educational pro- grams for children who have lung- damaging diseases, such as cystic fibrosis which is inherited and in- curable. In 1964, the Combined Federal Campaign was an experimental program covering six city areas—when re- sults showed a substantial increase in funds raised, the program was expanded. Last year, the campaign covered almost 55C rommunities and raised over $82 million dollars. Contributors cs> des-»nate the organization to which their contri- butions go.
