New online donation system for NDWCC

This year’s National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign (NDWCC) has launched but not without substantial changes to how it collects donations.

With many staff still working from home, the campaign is turning to an online pledge system.

“This year’s campaign comes with unprecedented changes and challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Margot Cutcher, CFB Esquimalt NDWCC Campaign Coordinator. “Social distancing and other health and safety precautions have changed how we run this year’s campaign including abiding by the Province of British Columbia’s preventative health measures.”

NDWCC is using ePledge available through the DWAN and the Internet. It allows for pay allotments and deductions or donations by credit card or PayPal.

“No donation is too small and every cent makes a real difference to Canadians in need, including our fellow Defence Team members, civilian employees, and their families,” she said.

Proceeds from the fundraising go to fund programs of the United Way of Greater Victoria and HealthPartners, a collaboration of 16 Canadian health charities, or a charitable organization of your choice such as the Esquimalt MFRC. 

This year’s campaign slogan: Apart but Together’ at Heart reflects the reality of the unfolding COVID-19 health crisis in Canada. Now more than ever donations are needed to keep local charities operating as they are unable to fully fundraise this year, says Cutcher.
