United Way or CFC Programs
Donating to FIRST through the United Way or Combined Federal Campaign is an easy and convenient way to support the important work of the Foundation. Depending on your pay schedule, a small deduction of $5.00 per paycheck can add up to over $200 per year for the Foundation. It's simple and convenient and can really make a difference.
