WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT SEEC!
SEEC engages in a variety of other development activities aimed at strengthening the program through corporate, foundation, and individual giving. The funds help enrich the museum-based curriculum and program, increase staff salaries and benefits, build the scholarship endowment, and provide additional income for educational outreach and special projects.
Annual Giving/Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)
- Unrestricted funds from individual donors are raised primarily through the yearly Annual Giving campaign, which seeks support from our community of parents, alumni families, teachers and staff, grandparents, and other supporters, and the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Since 1989, SEEC has participated in CFC, which allows Smithsonian employees and workers from other Federal agencies to make contributions to SEEC through payroll deduction. To date, over $200,000 has been donated to SEEC from the Combined Federal Campaign.
SEEC’s CFC # is 28194.
Please inform SEEC of your contribution to the Combined Federal Campaign by completing the gift/pledge form.
A gift through planned giving can help SEEC to insure our future and the future of children at the Smithsonian. To discuss setting up a planned gift please contact Meredith McMahon, Executive Director at 202-633-1395.
