CFO Kickoff

CFO Slider 2

Our 45th annual Christmas For Others campaign kicks off on Tuesday, November 29, 2016.

Throughout the month of December, our students, faculty, staff and alumni come together in the Franciscan spirit of giving. CFO is a program designed to make the holidays brighter for the less fortunate.

Since its inception in 1971, CFO has raised nearly $500,000 for charity. CFO is the largest student-run fundraiser in northeast Ohio. It is sponsored, organized and operated by the students, under the direction of Padua’s Key (Kiwanis) Club.
