Local United Way loses bid to run federal campaign

April 16, 2003

The United Way of Central Maryland has lost its bid to take over a large charity campaign for government workers from its beleaguered sister charity in Washington.

A federal coordinating panel awarded the contract yesterday for the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area to Global Impact, a group of 50 international humanitarian agencies that has run a similar campaign for overseas Department of Defense workers since 1996.

The National Capital Area campaign raised more than $47 million last year.

The United Way of the National Capital Area, reorganizing after disclosures of financial irregularities, had asked its Central Maryland counterpart to apply to run the federal campaign to keep it in the United Way family.
