THE FOREIGN SERVICE JOURNAL
Two Great Ways
to Support AFSA
For almost three decades, the American Foreign Service
Association has proudly supported and been affiliated with
the Combined Federal Campaign. This nonprofit is the world’s
largest and most successful annual federal workplace charity
campaign, raising millions of dollars every year.
More than 20,000 nonprofit organizations participate in the
CFC, including AFSA’s two charities: The Fund for American
Diplomacy and Foreign Service Youth Scholarships–AFSA.
Please consider supporting one or both of our causes as you
make your CFC selections in this year’s campaign.

CFC #10646: Diplomacy Matters–AFSA
AFSA’s Fund for American Diplomacy, registered as “Diplo-
macy Matters–AFSA” in the CFC, aims to create awareness and
understanding of the importance of diplomacy and develop-
ment as our nation’s first line of defense. Donations go toward
outreach initiatives targeting public and business audiences
through lectures, speaker programs and educational seminars.
The FAD also supports efforts to educate youth about the
Foreign Service. AFSA does this through our high school essay
contest, minority summer internship programs and career
seminars at universities across the United States. AFSA’s
Inside a U.S. Embassy: Diplomacy at Work
helps thousands learn about the Foreign Service.
Lastly, the FAD makes it possible to honor the achievements
of the Foreign Service community through AFSA’s annual
awards program. For more information about how the FAD
promotes U.S. diplomacy, visit:www.afsa.org/fad.

program has disbursed more than $4 million to 2,200 studentsin the last 25 years. Visit www.afsa.org/scholar or see page 76 for more information. n
