Brief History

The 2011 campaign was the 57th Annual DC One Fund Campaign. The DC One Fund originated to afford DC government employees a full opportunity to participate in charitable giving in their community. The District of Columbia Government agrees that the DC One Fund shall be the only on-the-job charitable solicitation authorized among DC government employees. The DC government seeks to achieve the objectives of an effective and efficient single campaign among DC government employees for the support of worthy, charitable causes with minimal disruption to the work force.
