Members of Edwards AFB’s 2012 Combined Federal Campaign team pose with the CFC Diamond Award April 1 at the 412th Test Wing headquarters building. Brig. Gen. Michael T. Brewer, 412th TW commander (far left), was presented the award and he then presented CFC Certificates of Appreciation to those Team Edwards members in attendance for their contributions to help make Edwards the most successful CFC fundraiser in Southern California.

Capt. Andrew Anderson, Global Power Bomber Combined Test Force and 2012 Combined Federal Campaign program manager, presented Brig. Gen. Michael T. Brewer, 412th Test Wing commander, with the CFC Diamond Award April 1. Team Edwards received the award for contributing the most money in the region to various charities during last year’s CFC donation period.

Edwards contributed more money than any other federal agency in all of Southern California.

Brewer also presented CFC Certificates of Appreciation to several Team Edwards members who helped with the campaign last year.

Edwards AFB’s 2012 CFC officially ended Nov. 14, 2012. The 412th Test Wing and tenant units that make up Team Edwards raised $401,500 for local, national and international charities.

“This total was incredibly close to our overall goal of $403,000 and represents an amazing achievement for all Edwards AFB personnel. This $400,000 will make a tremendous difference in the lives of many throughout 2013,” said Anderson.

While the official CFC season is over, military and federal workers alike can still donate to CFC throughout the year at cfcofgreatersocal.org.

The CFC is a great way for government employees to make a tax-deductible, year-end gift to charities.
