Did you know that if you are a current or retired federal civilian, military
or postal service employee you can support the International Wolf Center through
the Combined Federal Campaign? The International Wolf Center participates in
this campaign under Wild Animals Worldwide.
The Combined Federal Campaign is the world's largest and most successful
annual workplace charity fund drive. There are more than 200 local CFC campaigns
throughout the country and internationally. Pledges made by federal civilian,
postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th)
total more than $275 million annually which go to eligible non-profit organizations.
State, municipal government, private sector and employees that give through
the United Way will find us in many of their campaigns as well. If you don't
find International Wolf Center listed, then simply "write in" our name.
The International Wolf Center has been awarded by Independent Charities
of America its Best in America Seal of Approval.
See www.bestcfc.org for details.
The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to the members of
Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America
that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document,
and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of
public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These
standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the
Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world.
Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated
that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of
those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal.
The International Wolf Center is a 501(c)(3) organization.
