If you are a federal employee, consider making a difference in the lives of people with asthma and allergies with an easy donation through your paycheck.

You likely know someone with asthma and allergies – or perhaps you are affected. According to the CDC, 1 in 14 people have asthma. In children, asthma is the leading cause for missed school days. Allergic disease is rising, affecting as many as 30% of adults and 40% of children.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) was founded in 1953. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with asthma and allergic diseases through education, advocacy and research.

It’s easy to pledge your support through workplace giving! Simply choose #10583 on your CFC Pledge Form.

Donating through payroll deduction enables you to provide a much-needed stream of funding to AAFA, so we can continue to improve the lives of those affected by asthma and allergic disease.
