2021 Virtual Kick-Off

Join the CFC-O 2021 Virtual Kick-Off

Give your campaign a head start by joining the CFC-Overseas Virtual Kick-off beginning September 20, 2021!

How does it work? 

It is simple. Invite your leadership, campaign team, and coworkers to pledge online, and promote online giving between September 20, 2021, through October 18, 2021. The more pledges collected online, the higher your campaign progress will track on our online giving pledge report, and the closer you are to making our virtual leadership dashboard as one of the top virtual campaigns overseas for 2021!

Eligibility: 

Open to all overseas campaign locations.

Important Dates:

September 20, 2021, through October 18, 2021. 

How do you make the virtual campaign dashboard?

On September 20, 2021, you kick-off your virtual marketing efforts by announcing the virtual campaign start date, coordinating social media posts or promotions with your public affairs office, asking leadership to email a memo in support of the campaign, and using the resources in our virtual kick-off tool kit to encourage online giving. 

While you should continue your virtual efforts throughout the entire campaign, this is a race for the most successful virtual kick-off through October 18, 2021, when you will host your paper kick-off and add printed material into your marketing efforts. 
We will keep you updated weekly with pledge reports. The CAPO locations with the highest online giving participation will be highlighted on our weekly virtual giving dashboard as the leaders for the best Virtual Kick-off!

Winner Selection:

The top virtual campaigns will be announced each Friday and will be based on the size of the combatant command as detailed below:

  • AFRICOM Top 3
  • EUCOM Top 10
  • INDOPACOM Top 10
  • CENTCOM Top 10
  • SOUTHCOM Top 3

The final online giving results as of October 18 at 5PM EST will be used to determine the top virtual campaigns overseas for 2021.

Winners will receive a framed certificate, be highlighted in a press release, and be recognized on the CFC-O website, social media, and campaign finale presentation.
