Who’s your PCFD (your local United Way)?
The Department of General (DGS) selects the organization best qualified to manage Our Promise in a designated geographical area. The DGS contracts with United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR), the Principal Combined Fundraiser Operator (PCFO), to facilitate the Our Promise campaign statewide. UWCCR subcontract’s with the other PCFD’s to run the campaign statewide. PCFD’s are also know as the local United Ways. There are 25 PCFD’s included in the 2017 campaign.
Some of the ways in which the local PCFD facilitates the campaign:
- Serving as a liaison between the PCFD and the state department and their employees in that region
- Assisting volunteers with all Our Promise materials
- Coordinating volunteers and speakers for meetings
- Providing volunteer training
