Workplace Giving Works!
Every fall thousands of federal, state, and
municipal employees; select corporate
employees; and active and retired military
personnel around the globe designate contributions to CBF through a workplace giving campaign. It’s efficient. It’s easy. And it’s
a great way to support CBF’s Bay-saving
programs throughout the year.
To participate, select CBF as your designated charity during your organization’s campaign. If CBF is not listed in your campaign
brochure, ask if “write-ins” are permitted.
For United Way campaigns, please write-in
CBF using EIN: 52-6065757.
Remember, if your employer matches
employee donations, your contribution can
have twice the impact!

A Legacy of Doing Good: Dr. H. Fred Clark
VOLLIE MELSON/CBF STAFF
Enjoying the Bay and fishing off the shores of CBF’s Port Isobel Island in Virginia, Fred Clark poses
proudly with his wife Karen and John Rodenhausen, CBF’s Discovery Program Manager.
Environmentalist. Husband. Father. Grand- father. Social activist. Professor. Scientist.
Dr. H. Fred Clark, who passed away in April,
wore all of those hats. As a researcher, he was
one of three Philadelphia scientists whose
work on the rotavirus (a common cause of
severe inflammation of the gastrointestinal
tract in children) vaccine is credited with saving children’s lives worldwide since 2006. As
an environmentalist, he and his wife, Karen,
left a lasting legacy with a gift to CBF in 2008
that would revitalize CBF’s environmental
education program in Hampton Roads.
Their gift: a 50-foot vessel christened the Bea
Hayman Clark after Dr. Clark’s mother, a highly educated social worker, who instilled in her
son a desire for lifelong learning and a love of
the outdoors. Every year, more than 2,000
students, teachers, and adults learn about the
Bay aboard this “floating classroom.”
A fascination with nature led Dr. Clark to CBF,
but the donation of the Bea Hayman Clark was
fueled by more than that. Vollie Melson,
CBF’s Vice President of Development and a
friend of Dr. Clark’s, recalls a telling conversation. “I don’t have long to live,” he said, “and
I want to make sure the Clarks are remembered for doing good things.”
His commitment to CBF and environmental
education is just one of the “good things” of
Dr. H. Fred Clark’s legacy.
