Each fall, Federal employees are invited to donate to a charity of their choice – and we hope that you will choose Barker! You can elect to have a specific monetary amount withdrawn from each paycheck or make a one-time donation. Donating through the CFC is a proven, effective and efficient way to support Barker. For more information, please visit Barker’s CFC designation # is 38308.
