FedCFO Charity Considerations

As the time of year has arrived for many people to consider their charitable giving options, I would like to call your attention to two charities of importance. Each has a section 501(c)(3) status under the Internal Revenue Code. Both provide a high return to society from your donation.

The Holly Davidson Fund for Lymphoma Research
Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center
Attn: Office of Advancement
3300 Whitehaven St., NW
Suite 4000
Washington, DC 20007

"Holly's Fund" was established to support the lymphoma cancer research efforts at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University Hospital. Many research programs' successes hinge on the ability to sustain funding through the project lifecycle. Holly's Fund provides sustainment funding to several Lymphoma research projects ongoing at Lombardi. Additionally, the "Holly Award" is a distinguishment bestowed upon the nurses and staff of the Lombardi Center who are nominated by the Lombardi Center patients and their families as outstanding caregivers. The "Holly Award" silver holly leaf is proudly worn on the uniforms of many exceptional Lombardi staff members.

Yellow Ribbon Fund
Make a Donation Online or, by mail at:
Yellow Ribbon Fund
7200 Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 310
Bethesda, Maryland 20814

Every day, our wounded servicemen and women return from combat, many to long-term rehabilitation at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital. Beginning in late 2004, over 500 individuals and businesses in the Washington Metropolitan Area donated funds to help these service members and their families. In February, 2005, the Yellow Ribbon Fund was created specifically to welcome them into our community through community volunteers--friends who care.

Yellow Ribbon Fund meets two needs:

  • helping the families of soldiers as well as marines, especially those in long term care at Walter Reed Hospital and Bethesda Naval Hospital, and
  • helping all injured servicemen and women to make the transition from military to civilian life.
