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

popular guide,

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:

CFC #11759: Foreign Service Youth Scholarship–AFSA

Known as the AFSA Scholarship Fund, this nonprofit will

award more than $260,000 in merit- and need-based scholar-

ships to tax-dependent children of parents who have served in

the Foreign Service and are AFSAmembers.

No AFSAmember dues go toward the AFSA Scholarship

Fund. All scholarship support comes from contributions. This

program has disbursed more than $4 million to 2,200 students

in the last 25 years. Visit or see page 76 for more information. n
