About the CFC

The Combined Federal Campaign allows you, the Federal employee, to support the international, national, and local charities you care about. How much you give and the group or groups that will receive your support are decisions entirely in your control.

Most Federal employees elect to pledge a specific amount to be withheld regularly from their pay beginning in January and continuing through December. One-time gifts are also possible.

The payroll deduction method has many advantages.

It is efficient: Workplace giving campaigns are the most cost-effective method to raise funds for charity, and most of what is collected from Federal donors reaches the designated groups.

It is also easy: Donors find workplace giving a simple, convenient way to support the charities they care about.

The CFC has been around for four decades. Each year, tens of thousands of charities apply to participate. Only those that meet strict standards of eligibility are admitted.

Over the years, Federal employees have donated billions of dollars to eligible groups. We invite you to review last year's success.

In communities across the country and overseas, Federal volunteers supervise the CFC, ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of this worldwide philanthropic effort. In every possible way, the Combined Federal Campaign belongs to you, the Federal employee.
