The 2014 Campaign
|News at Northern Lights CFC|
2014 Message from Co-Chairs
You can now make your pledge online by clicking on the blue Pledge Online button (left) and choose from CFCNexus, Employee Express, or MyPay options. Links will take you to the pledging page for each.
Here is a great idea for your campaign: 8 leaf bags for $10 with the CFC logo. These are paper bags of sturdy construction and biodegradable -- even better!!
Search for Charities:
You can also search by zip code by entering one in the zipcode box.
2014 CAMPAIGN KICKOFF FUNDRAISERS
We have four great fundraisers planned to help kick off the 2014 campaign with the Minnesota Twins, the Wild, and, new this year, Minnesota United FC soccer club!!
We now have the date for the MN United FC Soccer Fundraiser! Saturday, October 4th, 7 p.m. at the NSC Stadium in Blaine. It may not be the World Cup, but think of how much you save in travel expense and still get a great game - and give to charity besides!!
The two Wild games will be announced as the dates are set.
Agencies that use MyPay must enter their agency code when pledging online (see link at left under the poster). A short training slide presentation is available by clicking here.
Since the MyPay and Employee Express sessions are timed for 20-30 minutes only, it is better to use the Search Charities button at the left on this page to find charities, especially when searching for local charities outside the Northern Lights campaign area (universal giving), before beginning the online process through MyPay or Employee Express.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES - "Supporting the Community"
St. Paul Parks also has some volunteer opportunities.
ONLINE PLEDGINGYou can access your CFC Nexus pledge by logging in and clicking on the menu item, My Pledges and Profile. You will be able to see all previous pledges.
You can try a demo of the system at www.cfcnexus.org; just click on the banner that says Demo. Since it is just a demo, the information goes nowhere.
